yes, hello?

i'm pretty sure i get at least one wrong number call a day. i just had the following conversation with ms. (XXX)635-0915 (i'm not that big a jerk).

me: hello?
wnd (wrong number douche): hello?
me: hello?
wnd: yes, hello?
me: hellooooo?
wnd: yes, hello?
me: HELLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOO?
wnd: yes, hell...(click)

why do people so easily forget that they are the ones who are initiating the call and therefore should be asking for someone instead of repeating back hello?

it's the scourge of cellphones and caller ID. we've lost all ability to speak to people with whom we didn't intend to speak. the same thing happened to me the other day. they never said who it was they were looking for. i was the one who had to ask. and i hate being helpful, dammit.
