He doesn't have that much stuff-probably would take me 45 minutes to pack everything and move it to the curb...tempting.

I have an answering machine. When I am busy doing something (which is most of the time), I just let the machine/voice mail pick up. For the past month, I have been getting calls 3x/day from a number I do not recognize. The caller never leaves a message. I find that extremely annoying. Why call if you are not going to leave a message? And, why call back and then hang up? I have changed my message to say that if you call and hang up, don't expect a call back.

^^^ Probably an automated call coming from a tele-marketer. I usually pick up and hang up without saying a word.

If you do a search for the number, you can often find out who the caller was.

I often google numbers and I can usually find out who it is.

I had a company calling on behalf of Verizon Wireless trying multiple times a week to sell me a new plan, that I don't want or need. They would only let it ring 3 times, and I was usually at work. I finally got a chance to speak to them and gave them an ear full. They haven't called since.

For sure it is some sales pitch, they never leave a message.

I have had sales messages on my phone. Today I got one telling me about getting a free cruise to the Bahamas if I fill out a survey. That phone number is my reject list, so the phone doesn't ring, but it doesn't stop them leaving me stupid messages. I once got a sales pitch message that didn't fit before the answering machine cut off, so they called back to continue the pitch. I think it took four times for them to give me the whole pitch. grrrr

I don't answer out-of-area calls or calls from area codes I don't know. What really annoys me is when they wake me up from a nap.

Me either, Andy. If I don't recognize the area code, it gets dismissed.
