    My dad does that.

    'Hi, its your dad.....'

    '....'

    'I know 'what do you want?' sounds rude but what do you want?'

    My sister's ex husband used to call me and then go silent as if it was me who called him. Could never work that one out. "Hi mate it's Carl............"

    Well go on then what the fuck you want?
    Wait, did you say hello back? Or did you just remain silent and wait for him to continue?

    I very rarely answer my phone as I hate talking on it in public but everytime I call someone back I always start with "Hello, you called?". Everytime without fail. I just put them immediately on the spot to get it over and done with.

    Slightly developing the theme, my brother-in-law does all the phone calls for my lazy fucking sister. Including replying to text messages I have sent her.

    She then barks corrections in the background. Because her husband is an idiot

    I've not got this much recently because I've stopped answering calls from unknown numbers but this sort of conversation irritates me immensely.

    Me: Hello.
    Stranger: Er, is Dave there?
    Me: No, there's no Dave here.
    Stranger: Isn't this Dave's number?
    Me: No, you've got the wrong number.
    Stranger: Who's this then?
    Me: (What I want to say) IT DOESN'T FUCKING MATTER WHO I AM BECAUSE YOU'RE AFTER SOMEONE CALLED DAVE AND THAT ISN'T ME. HOW AM I GOING TO EXPLAIN WHO I AM IN A WAY THAT HELPS YOU AT ALL? NOW FUCK OFF WITH YOUR STUPID QUESTIONS.

    I'm not much of a people person or a phone person.

    I would have some fun with them but they know my number so they might keep hassling me later. I had wondered about trying to give them an explanation of who I was using crap claims to fame like I used to work with someone who had a small role in three episodes of Eastenders.

    Fun times.
    May have sorted this with a better job and a pay rise at the company that works on the other side of my office.

    Apparently I can network, who knew.
    And the CFO of the City Council wants to take me on.

    Things may just be coming up Milhouse.

    Fucking hell, trying to sort out travel insurance for my dad as he goes to visit my brother in Australia for 6 weeks and what a massive pain in the tits, most places won't cover more than 31 day trips if you're over 65, no idea why not so the cheapest I can find is 230 quid.
    Bloody pisstake!

    @challenge_hanukkah Yeah, don't get me started on that. Last year we had a norovirus outbreak here, which persisted only because various dickheads insisted on dragging themselves into the office while having to vent foul liquid from both ends every 20 minutes. They ended up having to close our cafeteria and certain parts of the building for disinfection.

    Fortunately, I think I ended up about the only person in the building who didn't catch it (had it before and it is foul).

    People not having put all their stuff in their bags and their counted cash ready when the grocery clerk names the price. You're halting society's assembly line goddammit. Today there's friction in the line, tomorrow the whole societal machine falls apart. Inefficient twats. Nah, saboteurs

    This has nothing to do with getting home with my beer as quickly as possible, I'm only concerned about the wellbeing of society
