We decided to shut down voice mail on our home phone after discovering that no one in the family ever remembered to check it. There is no flashing light to remind us! And we usually use our cell phones to make calls so we never hear the funny dial tone that alerts us that we have messages!
Our sincerest apologies to anyone who left us a message that we never responded to. You'll have a much easier time reaching us on our cells. Or emailing us. Or sending us a PM on Facebook.
I'm betting this means we are one step closer to abandoning our land line.
