    I usually say, “Yes, this is.”  Unless I don’t know who is calling.  Then I say “Yes?”  LOL

    None of the above! Other! If someone calls and asks “May I please speak to LiliKitty?” I say “Speaking”… And now I feel weird for it but I know my mom does it, everyone in the office here does it, so at least I’m not alone! If by weird chance I don’t say that, I say “Yes, this is she.”

    “this is Megan”

    edit: if It’s my offce line, I always say “may I ask who is calling” before I divulge that it is actually me on the line.

    “Yes, this is she…”

    I heard my mother saying it all the time growing up and it just rubbed off.

    What can I do for you? Or How can I help you? Usually shortly followed by “Telemarketing is illegal in Canada. I report each and every call to the CRTC. Enjoy your fine.” and hang up. I’m a pleasant person 🙂

    wrong number! I hate talking on the phone

    If it’s a call I am expecting I will usually say speaking.
