I really don't appreciate it when salespeople try to sell me something other than the product I had inquired about -- even after I ask them to do me the courtesy of sparing me the pitch, since I'm in sales too. In fact, brings on the "I am going to buy from anyone else but you when I hang up this phone because you wasted my time" reaction.

Annoying Voicemail Messages

  After the latest in an onslaught received today, it occurred to me alot of individuals selling whatever brand of snakeoil, whether home-fermented or from the factory, could really stand to try a new approach to leaving messages.  Because it's really really really annoying as hell to finally get a message that says "Hi Angela, I'm Jane Fuller and my direct number is xxx-xxx-xxxx.  Call me at your earliest convenience" after said person has called you three or four times a day from a number you don't recognize for two weeks straight. 

And when you google the name and number you discover  -- shocker -- this person is in the (take your pick) lean shakes/vitamin/vodoo juice/fountain of youth water business. 

Seriously. If that's all the game you got, leave me the f* alone.
