Yes it does. Much like when you read in mls "no showing until 4/16/15" and it is now 10/2/15.

Nah, I just laugh and move on. It is a waste of my time to get bugged. I would rather throw a ball to my cat to retrieve. A
No, at least you know what is going on. It is bugging me more when i call again and again and the agent returns ( if ever) call in one week with no explanation of the delay.
Maybe they wanted to stay so much longer out of town
Paul, why yes! And I usually include a little nudge in whatever message I leave.
No but it is a sloppy business practice. I usually mention the out-of-date message in my VM because it is easy to forget we didn't update it after a vacation.
It is a bit annoying but I don't dwell on it and realize they have gotten back to work and are probably swamped.
I resemble that remark! Or how about the Realtor who states in the MLS listing, "All offers to be presented by September 15th" and here it is Oct 1st!!
People make mistakes, and that first week back at work is generally a busy one.
It makes me wonder if they were in a car accident, or extended their vacation an extra week. I usually include in my message that their voicemail needs an update in case it is a detail they have forgotten about.
I've encountered those and similar ones. Usually, I mention that in my voice mail.
Or a couple of months or more? Absolutely. Don't record time specific announcements if you aren't committed to updating!
Yes it absolutely does. I see that every once in a while, not many times
Yes, especially when the date has passed and their voicemail is full.
There are many things that bug me. This is certainly telling of that person's attention to details. I see evidence of this in the mls remarks as well such as "offers will be reviewed on July 24" or "no showings until August 1" and it's October. Details. Details.
Paul S. Henderson, Realtor, Tacoma Washington Yes, and the emails bug me too!
No. I have better things to do.
Good Friday morning Paul. I can understand your frustration. Folks are for they are. If they are too lazy to change a voicemail what else are they lazy at?
Yes it does a bit, but I just move on and call their cell or send an email.
on a cell phone not so much. a business line (desk) it does.
no. Call the office finding out what the agent is up to.
of course, if they are on top of their own stuff how can you trust them with yours?
If one is going to use voice messaging...then be good at it. That's all I know
Absolutely! Why go through the hassle of making the vacation message if you don't change it back? I'll report it to people the day they return.
Paul - Yes that does bug me, and I have had that happen a few times.
