I hate...

Two things right now:
1) Dust covers. This is widely known and explanation of WHY is entirely unneeded.
2) PEOPLE LEAVING MUSIC on their Answering machine as the "Please Leave a Message" message instead of A REAL MESSAGE.

If I had wanted to hear your crappy music (which is made exponentially crappier by the fact that you held your phone so close to the speaker that I actually heard it cry for help, thus making any prayer of actual sound quality entirely hopeless) I would have spent [wasted] money to buy the music, not call you. Have some dignity; be proud of who you are and at least pretend to show the tiniest bit of professionality. I'm also afraid that you are worried why you don't get any voicemails, and if you do, why they have the smallest [most obvious] overtone of disdain or displeasure; please realize that I called to speak to you. There are a series of disappointments here, and by the time we get to the proverbial beep (the place where I'm supposed to begin speaking) I am so let down that I don't care to discuss it at length right now.
1) I called and it rang more than a few times, which leads to
2) You actually not answering at all, which is disappointing because I have something to say, and realize now that this will not be resolved. That leads to
3) The overwhelming sensation that a voicemail is in my midst, only compounded by
4) Your horrible [stupid and childish] music begins playing in my ear instead of your message, or even the nice woman that Cingular has hired to give the song'n'dance about leaving a voicemail or paging the recipient.
I then hope and pray that you will return my call lest we rinse and repeat tomorrow...

Adieu

That's usually something a person grows out of unless you are... *cough*"you-know-who"*cough* who only recently started using the cingular lady. It's always a classic when you call up and you get one of those messages that acts like it's the person. Gets Aunt Beachy every time...so yes, I agree. There's too much feedback.

First, Idunno doesn't have a mean bone in his body. Second, I think I'm going to have to find a crappy quality song to put on my voicemail now - especially since only you and Kimi call me. It will make her giggle and I'll giggle knowing that you had to listen to it to leave a message. :-)

Consumer Update: "Once again, we have received complaints concerning the alleged Idunno doll defect. I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of you for the interest in this product. New updates are still available each day! As far as the concerns over a series of 'mean' dolls, I would like to assure you all that these items are on recall. Please return your doll for the upgraded, more thoughtful version. You will be pleasantly rewarded by his insightful little gems."

Update to the Consumer Update: We want to apologize for refering to the "I dunno ACTION FIGURE" as a doll in the previous communication. All previously released and future versions of this item are, and always have been, classified as ACTION FIGURES. Please note that ACTION FIGURE appears in all capital letters. As for the aforementioned "mean" version of said ACTION FIGURE, please refer to this by its market name - "I dunno, The Fighter." Please keep your eyes out for the new "thoughtful" version - "I dunno, The Thinker," as well as the more romantic version, "I dunno, The Lover" - both to be released later this year. Collect all four (the three limited editions along with the original), photograph them in ACTION, and receive an autographed copy of the really limited edition I dunno Poster.
