how most phone calls go these days

me: hello?
caller [with tone of utter disappointment]: Oh. [long pause] You're home.

Or if I'm the person calling:

person being called [tone is expectant, gleeful]: Hellllllooooooooooooooo?!
me: Hi, I just had a question about that recipe you gave me last week.
PBC: Oh.

It's quite entertaining to have people be so excited to hear from me in one breath and so disappointed in the next. I'm totally guilty of pulling the same exact thing with friends and coworkers, though, so this is probably the universe's way of saying, "Ha! See how this feels?"
