Haha, right on! I hate it when people call in general and ask who it is before saying who THEY are or asking for someone.

Hahaha!!! I can’t stand that, either. I always fire back with “Who is THIS?!” Don’t call me and ask who this is… you should know if you’re calling!! ;]

I HATE THIS TOO!!!!  Seriously, WTH?  My parents were really into phone manners, so to this day I still open conversations with people I don’t know well or call infrequently with, “Hi, this monitajb, may I please speak to X?”  Was this never a trend?

I’ve totally done that! I think I just get frazzled when the person who picks up is not who I am expecting it to be. I know, it is annoying and I haven’t done it in a long time. haha.

Haha…that drives me crazy too!  I always say “Oh I’m sorry, I think I dialed the wrong number” if I called and was, in fact, at fault for calling the wrong number.

I have actually had people call me, and after I say “I think you have the wrong number”, they have said “Why did you call me?  Do I know you?”.  Whaaaat?!  No you don’t know me – YOU called me!  Hahaha…what is that!  Bizarre.

I usually respond to “who is this?” with “Well, who did you call?”  

The ‘why did you call me’ thing is usually someone looking at the missed calls on their phone but not listening to the messages.  We call people from work and leave messages and instead they call back and say “someone called me from this number?” then we have to try and figure out who called them and why.  If they just listened to their message before calling back they wouldn’t have needed to call us at all!
