I don't. Those messages offend me. 
And what if I'm calling to put in an offer during "non-work" hours? Are they ignoring me until the next day?

No, because I pick up the phone whenever it rings ... LOL, I've had agents (or customers) call well after midnight and the first things they said, "Oh I'm sorry, I didn't think you would pick up the phone!"  My response, "Well this is not Memorex ... so how can I help you?"
