I once worked with a guy that had a ridiculously long greeting on his voicemail. He talked really slowly and gave a very detailed description of his plans for the day. It was literally minutes long… longer than any message I would ever leave for him. He updated it every day with the new details of his daily activities. I had to leave him messages multiple times a week and it was torture having to sit through it each time. I worked there for almost 4 years before finding out that I could simply press “9″ to skip to the end of his greeting and immediately start recording my message.
