This has annoyed me for years!
I point it out to my wife every single time it happens…and it happens A LOT!
A character in a movie or television show will be having a phone conversation, and all of a sudden they just hang up. No one ever says “bye” to end the call! What’s up with that!? It’s so rude!
Apparently, according to this compilation, it’s been happening for years!
It happens with such regularity that it confuses people around the world into thinking that’s actually how Americans act on the phone! How hard would it be to add that line in the script?
Do Americans really not say goodbye when ending a phone call? All these tv shows they just hang up.
