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.
