You receive a late night "pocket dial" from a casual acquaintance. Once you realize the person dialed you by mistake, do you keep listening or hang up?

I always listen it could be something you could hold against them or something embarrassing about them is said.

I stay on to listen if I can hear conversation. That's always interesting. If its just noises I hang up.

I'd listen long enough to make sure they weren't intentionally trying to pocket dial me be because they were in trouble then I'd hang up & text them just to be sure lol

One time my husband's phone called my mother during "magical sexy time". Left it on voicemail. Perfect.

I listened for a little bit then stopped when I realized what was going on. Magical sexy time.

My fiancé accidentally butt dialed his parents at one of his frat parties. It wouldnt have been a big deal if his parents weren't extremely conservative and thought he didn't drink

Hang up to respect their privacy.

What if they need your help?
What if all that moaning isn't what you think it is?
What if you never liked them very much anyway?
What if you care more about who you are than helping a friend?
What if you are a bore? You aren't a creep unless its pleasurable.

No, but I sure listened when my soon to be ex husband pocket dialed me after he lied about working late. Fortunately I suspected what the call confirmed already and it only made my decision to leave that much easier. It was even fun when he got home and I watched him realize he'd been caught lying.

It depends. If I hear them say "Where will we hide the body?" I'll keep listening.

I'd listen for a little bit to make sure they were fine. But, I have much better things to do than listen to someone else's conversations. Although, I'm sure other nosy, drama-crazed teenage girls would say otherwise.

Hasn't happened to me, but I think I'd listen long enough to make sure they weren't in some kind of trouble and then hang up. I'm uncomfortable overhearing conversations not intended for me, so I really don't think I'd be tempted to listen.

I've never heard anything but the phone moving in their pocket and incomprehensible voices with a butt dial.

This has happened to me a few times and I listen briefly, then I'll start yelling or whistling into the phone. This worked ONE time. The other times, I just hung up.

Maybe it wasn't a mistake? And maybe it's your guy/girl friend making love. Stay for the orgasm (or whatever girls love in sex) and leave when you have finished. ;-)

Do to others as you would have others do to you. I get it, but frankly I wouldn't care if someone listened in on a butt dial from me. So it's not exactly immoral.

That's good, but I don't know it well enough to sing it as fast as it goes.

I usually try for something easy and comical, like a Disney song or something from Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog.

I suggest that those of you who must be a constant judge of others morality, whether politically or otherwise to look at oneself first. Then speak.

There's that perfect example of questioning an ACTUAL issue of one's morality. No, I would not listen and frankly have received a few from my wife, not at nite, as well as co-workers, which I have about 20 programmed into my business mobile phone to which I hang up when I realize I'm eavesdropping.

Best butt dial voicemail I ever got was from my girlfriend's sister talking about some dude she had just screwed, which was not very shocking though, she's a ho. Lol
