What happened to manners?

You know, I don't mind it if someone calls me by mistake because they've dialled a wrong number. Anyone can make a mistake. What I don't like is when the person calling doesn't even acknowledge that mistake.

Very often when I get such a call, the person calling has the decency to say "Sorry, I must have dialled a wrong number." I'll always be polite in return. This afternoon, though, I received such a call and, instead of apologising, the person calling just let out a stream of obscenities and then hung up.

What had I done to deserve that?

Had that person not concealed their CLID I would have called back and demanded an apology.

Something is going very wrong in society.
