Would you return a call if they didn't leave a message?
I find it annoying when people call you and expect you to call them back, but they don't leave a message. Do you agree? I find that a few guys I know (guys that like me), will call me back after I have called them and left a message. But when they call back, and I happen to miss their call b/c I'm busy, they don't leave a message. They even do this when we're making plans for a get-together or date. I find it kind of weird that they don't leave a message. But they would find it rude if I didn't call them back. I don't go through my phone log of missed calls, but I do go through my voice messages to call people back. And even better, my phone plays a reminder voicemail ring tone, which alerts me to call someone if I missed their call and they left a voicemail. If the person doesn't leave a message, I don't get the alert and I may never even notice the missed call. I figure, if I'm courteous enough to cal and leave a message, why can't other people do the same? Do you think it's normal to not leave a voicemail, but expect a call back? Thoughts?

The new etiquette because the phone will tell you that you missed a call is to call people back from your missed call log...
Call me backward, but I never leave a message, unless it's something urgent. But then, I also don't expect a call back. Plus, not everybody has caller ID (at least not where I live), so you can't just assume you'll be called back.
