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

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;

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!"

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

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

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

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.*

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

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
