  • if someone is talking out of their ass and won't let me get a word in i'll just do what i used to do when telemarketers used to call where I would just put the phone down, go to the bathroom, wash my hands, throw some food in the microwave, then grab the phone which usually their long accusations, rants, or any other BS gets out I will reply to them with "can you repeat that?" which pisses them off more for being ignored for their propaganda and lies :D

    • This case was different. I think they were mad I didn't agree to give them something they wanted so they used that excuse

    • Hopefully you blocked their number. With friends like that who needs enemies

    • As for telemarketers, i scream in their ear lol

  • I forget which movie it was, but the guy grabbed a sheet of paper and crunched it up close to the mic. Tried it and it worked. "Are you getting a crackling sound?".

    Mobile phones so often have connection issues you don't need to go to all that work now. You can just say bad connection and it is accepted More my problem is having a genuine bad connection.

    • Sooo true

    Every single one of your questions make me smile
    I read the question and my first thought was I would love to be her boyfriend for a week

    Just because of the way that you're mine things on how quick you are and how many different thoughts all at the same time are going through your head with the answers with the way you're going to handle them you are just on top of it and I love that I think it's cute it's adorable it's fun it's crazy it's dizzy but it makes me smile

    And that's just maybe a 1/64 of an inch. Of you the knowledge the wisdom the love the caring the power the happiness the silliness the craziness the dizziness of you would just be great

    To witness to become part of that adventure I think would be better than any Disneyland any experience you could ever go through I would buy a ticket right now because I want to experience that
    It would be better than any college any school any trade school any wisdom School because it's coming from you I just wanted to say thank you for all your questions because you make gag very cool and happy place to be a part of

    • Aww haha

  • Its a harder and harder excuse to use, given how much cell service has improved. I have used it as an excuse to not use video in work video conferences, opting for audio only.

    • you're right

  • I have. For my mom. She can't see that it's TIME TO HANG UP. and when she's talking shit, i just say our connection dropped. I don't use it often but i know I have because... well let's just say from when I was 18, we still have the same conversation.

    Everytime.

    • Hahaha

  • Come on? It's not quite a daily fixture but it's a fixture.

    • Franc: (something annoying)
    • Me: Sorry, Franc, I you're breaking up.
    • Franc, repeating, annoyed: (something)
    • Me: I'm so sorry. What was that?
    • Franc, really, really annoyed: (something, yet again)
    • Me: Franc, your reception is really bad. Call me back.
    • [ring, ring]
    • -- no answer
    • Lmao

  • LOL not for a while but I have used it before.

    • I do it to my grandma

    • LOL when you know they won't stop talking you got to do what you got to do.

  • I’ve never had to. I pretty much never pick up phone calls. I just watch my phone ring.

  • My phone usually legit dies before I am ready to bail on the conversation.

    • Woww your phone is helping you out

  • I haven't used that! We always say, "Let me let you go" and it almost sounds like a favor that your letting them get back to whatever they were doing but really it's because I want to get off the phone.

    • Haha yea i use that one

  • I never used it 🤷‍♂️. I always say '' Yao! Nice talking to you but i am in the middle of something. I will text you some other time'' And I do just text and keep it really short

    • Thats better

  • I have used it a few times in the past but it's been quite a while.

  • I HAVE I EVEN DID A VERY OBVIOUSLY FAKE "KRRRR!" SOUND INBETWEEN TALKING BEFORE HANGING UP

    • Lmao

  • Nope. I just genuinely have bad connection sometimes

    • If I truly did, i’d text and let em know or call right back

  • I've made scratching sounds and staccato speech to do that.

    • Haha

  • I did use it before. But I don't think I used it even once in the last 4-5 years.

    • You matured :)

    • Hopefully. 😁

  • Occasionally, my office is in my garage which is a giant steel box and the reception out here sucks. And if I get an annoying sales call I have been know to use it, "sorry my reception is poor, can you jest email me the details?"

    • Thats actually smart

  • Nope when I'm done with a conversation I just end the conversation.

    • I hear ya

  • No i haven't

  • I’ve used it a couple times

  • Nah, you just hang up whilst you are talking... no-one expects that.

    • Thats even more rude

    • Nah, not whilst they're talking, when you are. It's the extreme version of saying there is a bad connection. Generally only useful if you just can't face talking to them now and will call them back later when you have time or calmed down enough to have a reasonable conversation.

  • I never done it I just usually say chat next time and hang up immediately afterwards.

    • Well damn
