Benefits and Pitfalls of Answering Machines

March 07, 1987

Bloom's letter was beautifully expressed and depicted my sentiments almost to the letter. There was only one thing he failed to mention that is a massive thorn in my side--long distance and toll calls.

How much money have I thrown away trying to get in touch with someone, especially in the Los Angeles area, only to be charged for a call that, without an answering machine, would not have cost me a cent?

Such is "progress"? And I don't suppose there is a single thing I can do about this, short of simply not calling.
