Sweeties, you might be thinking, what kind of question is that? XD A typical person usually say "Hello", or "hi", when they pick up the phone. 50% of yall sweeties know, I'm a NOT typical person. XD Here's what I say when I pick up the phone:

"Chinese Restraunt!"
"Jeremy's Chinese Restraunt!"
"Ly's Chinese Restraunt!"
"Monst! We put the "F" "U" in fun!"
"PURPLE MONKEY DISHWASHER!"
"City Morge!"
"Tailand!"

XD Sweeties, if you don't believe me, ask my brother or my friends IRL. XD

I just say "Hi" or "Hello" or "Wha?"
Normally what people would say.

Cherrim
March 19th, 2005, 07:09 PM
On my cell phone with its caller ID and such, I'll normally just say, "Fish!" or something when I answer the phone. XD

At home, though, it's just a simple, "Hello?" I'd like to be far more random one day, but that has to wait until I move out of the house if I value my life. XD;

The Fallen
March 19th, 2005, 07:10 PM
Hmmm, quite a few things o.0;
Hi, hello?, yeah, Speak (If I know the person), ohla (if advertiser), probably more the listed XD.

XD I just say "Hello". But since we have caller ID i just say "What do you want?" depending on who it is XD

That's what I do..... Only my 'what do you want' is a more agressive WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've only done that to Riku(imgonnakilllexie), so ya can't ask Saphi(dark_espeon) cuz she hasn't experienced my more crazy phone answers.......but she will!

*calls Saphi*

I wish I could post that one Calvin & Hobbes comic where Calvin's talking on the phone and it's like:

"Can you take a message for me?"
"Sure, let me get a pen."
*blows up balloon and pops it*
"Ahhhg! I've been shot!"

"I hate taking messages.

Yeah, if I could post it, it'd be funnier.

I never talk on the phone myself ^_^
I only talked 4 times in my whole life. One I just answered, one I said goodbye to a friend, one I talked to my mom while I was away from home and one I talked to my aunt.
I probably said hi or something. I know people who say "yello"
In Japan, they say moshi moshi

Most people I answer the phone for is a Hello? Who is this?

When its my dad, I say "Heya sport! Whatcha up to?"

When its a friend, I say "Whadda want kid?"

When its someone else, I say "I don't sell or buy cookies!"

Lion Heart
March 19th, 2005, 10:58 PM
I say "G'Day, what's up?" normally, if I'm joking around I'll say some random stuff like "Yeah mate, we've already sent a hitman out to your place, thanks for calling our "Hire a hitman" service, bye".

Sometimes I'll hang up after that, since they always ring back :P

Or I'll pick up the phone and say "Is Ben there?" and they'll be like o.0 since they caled me :P

I'd just be like, "Hello?" curiously cuase I don't know how to set caller id. xD;;;

Kylie-chan
March 19th, 2005, 11:31 PM
Well, I avoid picking up the phone, due to being shy about calling up on the phone~ but if I must, it's normally my friend or family on the end of the line, so I just go "Hi [person here]." Yes, I'm boring. XD

But, I used to pretend to be the phone company and say the phone would explode, and then count down. XD

Crimson King
March 19th, 2005, 11:52 PM

If I know the person, I'll say 'Hi!'
If it's another one of those freakin' advertisers who speak in funny accents and try to sell me a mobile phone, I'll either speak in French or speak in an Americal accent. It really does their head in!



This is what I say:

'Bonjour! Je m'appelles Charlie Whitmore. Je n'ai parle Anglais, Je suis Francais.'
(Meaning: Hello! My name is Charlie Whitmore. I don't speak English. I am French)
*And if they really do my head in*
'Vos odour!! Tais vous!! Au revoir!!'
(Meaning: You smell!! Shut up!! Goodbye!!)
*I slam the phone down.*

Kira
March 20th, 2005, 03:07 AM
I usually say my name, but if I recognize the phone number, I say "Hi <insert name here>!"

Mr Cat Dog
March 20th, 2005, 05:45 AM
If I know the person on my mobile, I'll just say their name and such... But at home I just say Hello. When I was younger, I said: "Hello. My name is Jonathan. Who is speaking and how may I direct your call?" *giggles* I was so naive then XD

Shadowfaith
March 20th, 2005, 06:20 AM
Like MCD, said if I know who the person is, I say their name, or I say what do you want, XP...how rude is that, I know.

But If I dont know who it is, it's normally Hello.

But there are those few times, on nights when you just feel like a little prank, I say syuff like 'Hello, Chinese restaurant' in an accent or 'Hello you have reached (Insert random name here' sex agency' XD that really freaks some people out, I was even hung up on a few time from that joke XP

ashley03
March 20th, 2005, 06:33 AM
u usually say "hello","yello","hi",ect. but at times-if i know the person-i say their name.but i'm not on the phone most of the time,i'm on the computer ^^

TRIFORCE89
March 20th, 2005, 07:51 AM
Just a simple "Hello?" Yes, I know I'm boring. Once I was really out of it and answer with "One?" for some reason. I still can't figure it out. My dad's been obsessed with this weird message on our answering machine so now he's answer the phone with "Hello? This is Boris" in a Russian accent. Lol

Sammi
March 20th, 2005, 11:23 AM
I say hello. o.o;;

Once, I answer it with "yo" and got picked on for it.
Mom: Yo? O_O;;;

This was one of the weirdest phone conversations I've ever had:

Me: Caffiend Enterprises, we put the F U in fun utensils, how may I help?
Other person: I would like to order 700 number two pencils, please.
Me: I'm sorry, but we are currently out of those, the cemetery just ordered all of them. How about a complementary homicide victim for your worries?
Other person: What? I work at a school! I NEED those pencils!
Me: Well, we do have a discount today on Lemon-flavored cleaning products. Would you like that?
Other person: How do you know what they taste like?
Me: Someone filled the water cooler with it once. The doctor said not to worry, it would just kill a couple hundred brain cells.
*dial tone*

Biohazard Girl
March 20th, 2005, 08:23 PM
Okay, usually I just answer the phone with a "Who do you want" In a demanding tone XD

But there are those times someone calls for me and they're like...

Person: Is Katie there?
Me: No, I'm sorry, but she is *sniffle* no longer with us *pretends to cry*
Person: What? Are you kidding? How?
Me: I'm not *sob* kidding v.v See, she was *sniffle* in a great deal of...ddeee....deeprreeesssioonnn and andd and *sniffle* killed herself
Person: Oh, well, bye
Me: Thanx, I love you too. --;
Person: Now, honestly, is Katie there?
Me: Who do you think you're talking 2?
Person: You're such a drama queen
Me: Yeah, wait till you call me next time. Wink wink

depends on who shows up on my caller ID
if it's my friends [male]
"what up, man?"
my friend nina, or my hispanic relatives
"que tal?"
if it's an important person or someone for my parents:
"Hi, uh....uh...hold on" [hangs up]
if it's the annoying girls up the street who call and hang up:
"Stop calling my son!" [tries to imitate his father]
most of the time it's the trademark
"What up....? got my money?"

Draik
March 21st, 2005, 08:38 AM
Sometimes I say something like Gutentag, dis is makuno maturo of da Bonswana hotel service. Would you like a reservation?
or,
Yo, 'sup dawg this is the idiot clan.

March 21st, 2005, 10:07 AM
The good thing about Caller I.D! When it's someone you know you can answer in a different way.

If it's a family member, I just usually say "Hello". It goes the same way for someone I don't know. If it's a friend I say random things. When I do say "Hello" to them and they say "May I speak to Haley" I say "No, you may not". xD Sometimes I answer with "Allo! Pizzaria Paparazzi! Je peux vous aide?" to my friends from last year that were in my french class. It's kind of an inside joke. Other than that I say "Aloha" or it's completely random.

*~Ashley~*
March 21st, 2005, 11:49 AM
Eww, phones. >_<

I hate answering the phone, mainly because I don't want to get stuck talking to some Italian-speaking relatives of mine I don't particularly want to talk to. But on the rare occasion I do answer the phone... in other words, no one else is home and the sound of the phone ringing bugs me... then I just say, "Hello?" like a normal, boring person...

nadan the water queen
March 21st, 2005, 02:43 PM
I say, "Hullo?", like I'm really bored.
People here, in Minnesota say,"Yellow?!!!"
with a huge eager smile on their face.
Minnesotans can be really cheesy people,
but they sure are freindly! hint: that's
not ALWAYS good. It can get to be
really annoying,lol!

Sorano
March 21st, 2005, 02:50 PM
I avoid answering the phone so I can avoid having to talk with my Dad's customers. XD Once there was this Chinese person who was like "I would like to speak to your father if, possible. I know him". XD I couldnt understand her at first. Oo;

But normally I say something along the lines of "Hello" or "Hi". XD If its one of my friends I say "Woof" or something else totally random. o.o I sometimes pretend to hang up the phone or just wait for a while before speaking to annoy them. XD Sometimes I'll say "What the hell do you want~?" depending on my mood. XD;

So basically, I say a lot of things when I answer the phone. >D

good to be unique.

Dark Sora
March 21st, 2005, 07:05 PM
I sometimes say 'Hello'. But If I know who it is, I either say 'What the hell do you want', 'What, now', or 'Leave me alone' XD

But it depends who's calling XD

nadan the water queen

of calling (it can't be just to talk).

Dawson
March 22nd, 2005, 04:54 PM
I usually wait like 15 seconds. After the person who's calling says 'is anybody there' I say 'What are you, Stupid? If nobody was here you wouldn't be talking...idiot' Then they hang up and I laugh XD

Me: Please hold.
*me singing in the backround for waiting music*
Me: I'm sorry, but the person you requested is taking the express elevator up to the top floor. I'm afraid this isn't going to end well.
Person: WHAT?! That's my lawyer!
Me: Don't worry, we get this alot around here. It was probably just stress.

Forest Grovyle
March 23rd, 2005, 04:52 PM
I just say "hello" :P The one time I didn't and said something else, it wasn't who I thought it was on the other end of the phone and the person who it was ended up going "Wha...?" XD That was rather embarassing - so it's back to plain old "hello" now! ;)

Lil' Schu
March 24th, 2005, 07:53 AM
First I say "Hello." Then if it's a:
Friend: Oh, hey. How are you?
Someone wanting to talk to my parents: Hang on, I'll go get them.
(Those ever-annoying SPAMmy) Advertising companies: I'm sorry. Your phone call has not been accepted. Never call back here again, and I won't do this again. Thank you, and goodbye. (Except it's in an annoying voice. XD)
Someone I don't know: May I ask who this is?

I just love talking to advertisers. XD

Hmm, well, if it's my family I just say "HI!", but if I know it's one of my "friends" I usually say something like "The line is currently busy. For only 75 cents you can leave your name and number, and Quest will call you when the line is no longer busy." Then they hang up, most of the time...

Chiyo
April 8th, 2005, 05:48 AM
Sometimes I say really quickly, "Hello who is it?"
And other times when someone I don't like is calling, I yell out loud, "Oh my god! Britney Spears! Give me your autograph!" and hang up. If it is someone I like, I say, "Hello."
If it is someone I hate, I say, "Hello goodbye." But sometimes if I don't bother to see the number I say simply, "Hi."

I just say "hello", even thoe we have caller ID. One time my sister was calling home from work, and I picked up and said "What do you want" in a really rude voice, and it ended up being her boss! XD

I usually say the typical hello, but since we have caller id, if I know them and really don't want to talk to them right that second, I usually say "Yes *insert their name* what do you want now?" And I just realized that I'm really rude when I say that...

I usually say "Hello", though the occasional caller may receive a "Uh . . . " or "Um . . . ".

If it's someone I know I say "Ello?" and if it's a seller I'll yell "DIE!" since they annoy me XD

We don't have caller ID, and I just say "hello?" Except when it's my mobile which has call ID (of course) and I usually just say "Yeah?"

I try to avoid answering the home phone because it's sometimes my parents' Vietnamese friends and I can't speak Viet o_O

I just use the typical "hello" greeting.

Usually I don't like staying on the phone for any longer than I need to, so I don't bother with any other type of greeting.

Sweeties, you might be thinking, what kind of question is that? XD A typical person usually say "Hello", or "hi", when they pick up the phone. 50% of yall sweeties know, I'm a NOT typical person. XD Here's what I say when I pick up the phone:

"Chinese Restraunt!"
"Jeremy's Chinese Restraunt!"
"Ly's Chinese Restraunt!"
"Monst! We put the "F" "U" in fun!"
"PURPLE MONKEY DISHWASHER!"
"City Morge!"
"Tailand!"

XD Sweeties, if you don't believe me, ask my brother or my friends IRL. XD

Considering you call people sweeties, uhhh, yeah.

I say hi or hello.
