Calling and hanging up

:rtfm:

What's with people calling your house, then hanging up as soon as you answer the phone? I keep getting these "Out of Area" phone calls, and as soon as I say "hello", all I hear is "click" !!!

I just got one from an 877 number (domestic toll-free). WTF? This happens on like a daily basis.
Usually I'm in class, and it doesn't bother me -- but when I'm home (like today), it pisses me off.

Is someone checking up on me or something? Trying to figure out when I'm home and when I'm not or some shit....
I f*cking hate it.

How can I find out who it is?

The only thing worse than those calls is that you probably can't find out who is making them.

Telemarketers. I get them all time. I will pick up the phone and if there is a pause when I say hello I always hang up cause usually they'll come on like 5 seconds later.

Re: Calling and hanging up

those are from telemarketers.....they're usually making a few calls at the same time and when somebody picks up the phone they hang up on everybody else. they can make more calls this way without wasting time listening to the phone ring or an answering machine...i can't say for sure this is your problem but that's what it sounds like to me

Re: Calling and hanging up

I think the telephone system needs to get caught up w/ the rest of technology. It's almost 2006. Shit like anonymous phone calls should have gone out a while ago. Anonymous letters in the mail shouldn't be able to make it through the postal system either, but they do.

Re: Calling and hanging up

I usually breathe heavy for a few seconds, moan, and then hang up.

So it's not me that's calling you.

It's me. I'm trying to work up the courage to say something.
