We were at our friends house recently and the telephone rang. Friend answered the phone then hung it straight up without saying anything but hello.
While I would never say, 'Who was that?', I did say something like 'wrong number was it?'
It was a telemarketer calling and my friend just hung up on them without saying a thing. I normally just say, 'sorry, thanks but I don't have the time', and then hang up.
I like the idea of just hanging up without saying anything, but it seems so rude.
How do other people deal with telemarketers on the phone?
