I was recently listening to a talk show on the radio and I heard a caller tell the radio host after sharing his thoughts, I’ll hang up now and listen to your comments.”
And then I heard another caller say that. And another.
Why is it necessary for people to say, “I’ll hang up now and listen to your comments”? Firstly, of course you’ll hang up. What else are you going to do?
And who cares? Who cares if you are going to hang up or not?
How comes people say such silly things all the time and no one seems to notice?
And why do people say, “Thanks for taking my call”? Huh? The guy took your call because that’s how he fills his program time. How silly is that to say?
