Your post reminded me that I hate when people omit the 's from a word when the word is supposed to be possessive. Sorry, I think yours was just a typo though! But I have heard people say, for example, "I'm going to my mom house." It's "...mom's house."

Hee...I forgot that part. Yes, I also say Hello and introduce myself first. I was just cutting to the chase in my post.

I have friends who answer their phones in a strange way, IMO. You tell me if this is normal: Ring.. Ring... Ring... "JOHNSONS!" They've taught their children this too so when anyone answers the phone at their house, they just shout out the family name. It's sort of like a business or something. I know some would say "Johnson residence", but it's just the family surname.
It's not strange to me, but it is rather abrupt and might catch a caller off guard.

But it's better than my occasional greetings: "Chello" and "American Psychiatric Association." Now, that catches people off guard. Hee.
