    Jack Bauer! It all depends who I'm talking to. My woman yes, my boys, most likely not.

    It probably depends on the region. Around me, people usually say "bye; see ya ;or I'll catch you later, man (although the last one is usually from my bros)". The shows probably just do that to be more dramatic or something.

    Yeah that's a movie/tv thing. In my area we usually say "Late" short for later. "Peace", or "bye" also.

    Everyone usually days bye in one way or another. It is probably just an edit to fit in more commercials.

    Yea I also noticed this in all the American movies. Very funny. They hang up when they feel like without any announcement.

    They probably do this because the standard opening and closing is an uninteresting part of the conversation. It would be the same in every movie, bring attention away from the topic, add nothing to the plot and interrupt the feeling of the scene.

    Most people I know consider it rude to just hang up - but some of us Americans are more rude than others, and most of us occasionally have reasons to be rude. I can be quite rude to telemarketers, for example.

    We do say bye. They probably edit out that bit to accumulate additional commercial time.

    I always say "Bye." I find it rude when people don't say it when a call is ending and just hang up.

    Ha, yes, we say bye, or some sort of closing phrase. It bothers me too that in tv and movies they just hang up. It's just one of those Hollywood things that probably has a reason behind it, like why all cartoon characters have only 4 fingers per hand.

    It's TV...do Brits always call someone a "hunt" πŸ˜‰ ? I hear that in almost every movie made in the UK.

    I say Bye in some form to anyone I speak to unless its my ex wife. Admittedly, I do just hang up on her because she an evil blood sucking leech that I only speak to because we have children.

    Haha Thanks everybody it has always bugged me why they don't say goodbye and I feel it is rude also but the one about the tv ads is probably right.

    Yes "hunt" is a commonly used word to describe someone who is an *****, mainly women too which is sad but Tony Soprano used it in nearly every show if you've seen the Sopranos, greatest TV series of all time for me!!

    Groovy name, Dude... Lol
    I take it you misspelled it on purpose, right...?! They do tend to use it in our movies alot, and I do hear it in real life, but not nearly as much. Supposed to be really offensive, apparently....

    Weird!!!!!

    And in real life? Face to face? When you are on a visit at friends, you just walk out at a random time without a word? Heck no I guess, but why is phone different. It is just as rude in my world. Hanging up in the Netherlands without a proper closing is considered extremely rude and the other person would probably call you back and assume the line dropped or you are looking for a fight.
