When Does Technology Go Too Far?

Okay, so it's dinner time last night and the phone rings. My Caller ID notes an out of state number from a company with three initials. Hmmm...
Well, I'm on the Do Not Call list so it can't be a telemarketer.
I pick up the phone. "Hello?"
A tape recorded message tells me that this is a call from a non-profit organization, but no one is there to talk to me right now so they'll call me back at another time.

Hold up...

I'm getting calls FROM a company's voicemail now?

What's up with that?

Now for the fun stuff.
