....phone & ask me today why I hadn't returned the voicemails he left me over a week ago, regarding some tickets he wanted to give away on-air.
Initially, there was panic, and my mind raced to come up with a white lie to explain my complete disregard of his trying to contact me. Then I just told him flat out I never check my voicemail.
He thought that was funny. And to think of all the time I've wasted coming up with excuses. I think I'm going to change my voicemail recording.
"Hi, you've reached Jamie in Promotions. I am not going to ask you to leave a message here and then lie and tell you I will call you back. The truth of the matetr is, I won't. I never check this thing. Email me instead. Have a great day."
