  • I don't think I've had that happen since high school. I suppose I'd tell them they're being rude, and end the conversation immediately.

  • My husband has this problem with his cocky brother. He tells him to call him back when he can talk to him like a human and then he says bye and hangs up. He always calls him out on the behavior in some way or another before he hangs up

  • It really depends n who it is and why I am upset. Generally I will tell them what an ass they are being before hanging up.

  • I never hang up on them. Why lower myself to their standards? If it is my daughter, I tell her she is rude. If its my husband I say something like "I'm sorry you are having a bad day. I will let you go so you can get back to work." If it's my parents I say "what in the hell is your problem?" Because they are NOT human.

  • Who am I talking to? Am I pregnant? Am I having a bad day? Do I hate these people/ company enough to yell and hang up? Just depends on my day and mood, and who is calling. I never hang up on friends and family, but companies I sure do. Im pretty sure I was red flagged by the government once for something I screamed and hung up. NO I dont have anger issues, it was Tricare- Military insurance, jsut after I had my son. y life was in hell and well they were on my "to do list" for the day lol.

  • I hang up. My DH's grandmother called me on Christmas Day to insult me and yell. I hung up on her, and hung up each consecutive time she called. If I'm face-to-face with this person, I will call them rude. If I'm on the phone, I just hang up because I don't need to listen to someone insult me or my family.
