Yes I can hear you.
"Oh I couldn't tell, I thought you were saying 'hello' like 'HELLO?'"

"Ok, so can you hear me now?"
I'm kidding. If I couldn't hear you, how could I have answered the question?
"You're very funny."
What did people talk about before the invention of cell phones, when people could call each other and have entire conversations about whether or not they can hear each other?
"I don't know. I don't even remember what I called you now."
