Voice on the other end asked for the wife.
No identification of who is calling, just asked for the wife.
I asked who is calling?
---I just wanted to know if I have the correct number.---
The conversation went downhill from there.
Last time I checked,
You dial a number and the other person answers.
"Hi This is Billy Bob from the South Pole and I'd like to speak to Herman Marx about some penguins."
Not this carp of "Is Joe Baloney there?"
Am I wrong?
I usually don't answer the phone just to avoid "secret" people.
