Classic Catch 22. Can't get the job without picking up the phone; can't pick up the phone without taking a chance it might be a creditor.
Well it's one way to say "screw you I'm working on it!" and last I checked most people aren't bothered by being less than mannerly to a debt collector. I've heard many people answer phones with some quite colorful wording because of it. if you're willing to call a person a pig fucker you should probably be willing to do them the discurtousy of asking for a job. haha
Just hang up if you make that mistake again, although once you get a job you should start taking those calls and settling those debts. But, for future reference, debt collectors never leave messages because they know no one will ever answer their number again once they know it's a debt collector. A potential employer probably would leave a message, though, if they're interested in hiring you.
"Just a debt collector" i've never been called by debt collectors, if that ever happens then my life is a total mess
