To: Anyone I don’t know
Re: Your message

Just a heads up to anyone I don’t know who wants me to return their message (“Hi, Ross, this is Bob Smith. Please call me back as soon as you get this”).

If you want me to get back to you, tell me in your message what you’re contacting me about.

If you don’t, I will assume you are trying to sell me something (vs. say, returning my lost cell phone) . . . and will delete your message.

Ditto for all successive messages (some people are surprisingly persistent!).

And no, I don’t promise to return your message if you tell me what it’s about — but I guaranty 100% that I won’t respond if you don’t.

    What I find hard is those who call don't leave their number and are calling from a restricted number…

    also those texting you and don't write their name… if they have you in their phone it doesn't necessary mean that you have them in yours.
