It's a little thing but it annoys me.
I hate it when I'm at work, and I answer the phone (Hello, KVAK Radio.) and the guy on the other end goes, "LAURIE."
Is it SO HARD to say, "Hi, may I speak to Laurie please?" or "Is Laurie there?"
So I offer to take a message, he says he'll call back, and I say, "Okay. Goodbye." and he goes,"GRUNT," and hangs up. THE HELL??? ARE YOU A FREAKING NEANDERTHAL?
And it's always the SAME FREAKING GUY.
It just IRRITATES me, is all.
