I super duper hate when I call someone on the phone and ask is, "Bladda bladda there?" and the person says, "Yes, do you want to speak to him/her?"

No...I was just checking to make sure they were home. Thanks...

Yes, of course I want to speak to the person!

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.
