Annoying Corporate Email Issue of the Day.

So I get an email that goes like this:

Dear Vincent,
I phoned you and left a voicemail regarding this issue. Please listen to it and email me back.
Thanks so much

Let's analyze this for a second; this is an email alerting me that a message has been left on an entirely different medium of communication. Doesn't this negate using the original mode of communication entirely? Why not bother to just take a second and type the issue in that very same email that that was used incorrectly to begin with?

For a list of other things about corporate email that bug me refer back to this now ancient verbose post:
The seven deadly sins of corporate email.
