Hello everyone! I try to not leave message when I call somebody, because I prefer speak directly wit the person. So if he in not in his office, I try later.

I usually make phone calls and I don't like to leave voicemail messages. Whenever I have something to say, I call to my friends or my parents. But sometimes they are not free I leave a message to call me when they are back.
