PSA: If the phone rings, do not say "yes" or "OK" or "fine"

Recommended Posts

This is something one should not do, in case the caller is a scammer, but also to protect from other types of crime. Awhile ago, I answered the landline phone. It was a guard at the entrance gate to our rural subdivision. I didn't understand him.  DD came and she didn't understand him either. She asked me to get my wife, which I did. My wife interrogated him and they eventually discovered the person was going to another house...

I learned that as basic phone etiquette as a child. When someone says, "Mrs. ___?" when I answer the phone, I always say, "This is she."

(And if they say my name incorrectly, I always say, "There's no one here by that name." Saves me the trouble of listening to their spiel!)

I admit, I've gotten to where I say "are  you a real person or a robot?" even robots might say "I didn't understand the question".  I hang up.
