If you’re stuck on an annoying call, put your phone on airplane mode instead of just hanging up. The other person will see “call failed” instead of “call ended”.

  1. Real Pro Tip: Don’t ever answer you phone under any circumstances, and *always* keep it on Do Not Disturb.

  2. The pro tip is to talk normally, then start muting and un-muting your phone so it sounds like you’re losing service. Then flip it to airplane mode and leave it there a few minutes.

    Or just tell them you gotta go.

  3. Or end it like a normal person not wuss.

    Edit: thank you all for awards.

    As many of you pointed, you don’t have to end call rudely but this way you won’t immediately get called back. And trust me, I have bro with this issue and if I just ended call like this he would just call me back in a few seconds so I know the pain.

  4. This is one of the most Reddit posts I can think of. Instead of speaking up in a situation you’re uncomfortable with, do something slightly technological that seems like a smart way to avoid it. Only to have the person call you back in 5 seconds.

  5. LPT: learn to advocate for yourself enough that you’re able to actually say “sorry I need to go” instead of coming up with convoluted ways to get off a call.

  6. Or just say “I’ve got to go now” rather than become known as that person whose line disconnects at always the most convenient times for them. You don’t need a reason – someone may have private reasons for needing to leave a call. If you’d rather communicate via different means such as text message, discuss that with them.

  7. This doesn’t help anyone navigate annoying situations or develop interpersonal skills, it only leads to continued passive-aggressive behavior. Not a fan.

  8. As a customer service representative, I have lots of patience but could definitely use this on some people that are annoying AF.

  9. I just tried this on both Pixel 3 and and iPhone Xr. If the iphone ended the called, the Pixel said “Call Ended.”

    If the Pixel 3 ended the call, there was no message on the iphone. The call just dropped.

  10. **LPT**: *People who post crap like this make other people think way worse about them than people who would simply say “I am leaving the call”.*

    If your Life Pro Tip is reinforcing that it’s okay to be abnormally socially anxious by basically recommending you unnecessarily lie instead of simply telling the truth, it’s the opposite of being a Pro at Life.

    “I am going now. Good bye.”

    And hang up.

If you are ever being attacked by someone in public, yell a SPECIFIC name so they think someone you know is nearby

Try to keep in mind that you can be wrong at any given moment.
