Whenever someone answers the phone, they just say "Hello", even if they don't know who is calling them.

In German movies, the actors answer the phone by saying their surname so that the caller knows if he has dialed the right number.


My question is now:

How do you guys answer your phone if you don't know who is calling you? Just like in the movies or do you use your surname?

That is something that always interested me while watching American movies...

"Talk." Some people take that offensively for some reason, so since then; I have revised it and now I say "Talk, Please."

Me: "Hello?"

Other Person: "(insert words)"

Me: "Who's this?"


I have a hard time recognizing voices over the phone.

I usually say something like "snargaflargan"
If its someone I know, they expect it
If its a stranger, they hang up and I don't have to go through that awkward 'wrong number' moment

I have a hard time understanding why people take offense whenever I answer the phone like that. I got a lecture from a telemarketer just because i said 'Talk'.

I usually say something different every time. It ranges from hello to start talking dirty to thank you for calling Pizza Hut how may I help you. I sometimes say stuff boogersnot just to mess with people. If it's a strange number calling I say: Ello dis is Abu in a heavy arabian accent.
