Answering Machines

I called a friend’s voice-mail service this evening and I got really confused. It was asking me at every turn to press certain buttons to approve or disapprove the actions of the mchine.
Press 1 to leave a message, Press 2 to approve your message, Press 3 to have this person pay you $10 for the hassle….
OK… It didn’t have that last one, but PLEASE make it simple..
