“Hi, you’ve reached Eran. Please leave a message, and I’ll get back to you.”
That’s my voicemail message on my cell phone that I recorded in high school and can’t figure out how to change. Although I’m still a loyal proponent of phone calls themselves, I have to admit, I probably don’t check my voicemail as much as I should.
And it’s not just me. As young people shy away from leaving voice messages when an e-mail or text message can instantly reach business colleagues, we may have moved beyond the simple answering machine.
