Phone messages

I really don't know why readers take the time to call me and leave a message but give the wrong phone number, or no phone number.

Or better yet, as happened today, run through their phone number so quickly that I can't make it out.

In fact, I listened to one voicemail five times today trying to understand the phone number. I can't.

All of this happened today, as a few readers reported missing moving listings pages in Weekender. It was a mistake, I wanted to tell them. The listings will be back next week and for future weeks.

Maybe you get these kind of calls too, but just a reminder that if you call someone leave a clear message if you want it returned.  

I really appreciate calls, as opposed to the streams of e-mails that we all get.
