I’ve got your number…

I was on the phone at work all day long.  Between leaving messages for clients, and actually speaking to real live people, who answered their phones, I must have introduced myself fifty times.  Needing a break, I decided to call my eye doctor to schedule a post Lasik appointment.  I dialed the number and followed the prompts to reach the proper person.  Finally, my call was answered by voicemail.
