    In my professional setting I usually sign off with "Thanks for your time today. Bye". But in my personal calls I don't even know and I am incredibly bad at getting off the phone without it being awkward as all heck.

    Every time. What are the other options? Just hang up?

    I always say something like, "All right, take care." or "Later gator." It's just standard practice to actually say goodbye in some capacity.

    Only in Hollywood! I'm more referring to how many times you say something to finalise a single conversation. Some people tend to say "see ya" and follow up with "bye", for example.

    Depends on whom I'm talking to. If I am close friends with the person/s then it can take a while. I've had more than one moment where me and my mate have agreed we're calling it for the night on the xbox and yet sat there for another 2 - 3 hours in the game doing smurf all whilst talking over things. This in Destiny has led to some interesting moments where we're in the tower or reef trying to do stupid trout.

    If I'm on the phone to my family it's generally pretty quick at getting off the phone usually "ok, well ttyl bye!" stuff.

    Work calls kinda depend on the person I'm talking to usually "That's great, thanks!" and I'm done though.

    I usually just want to say ok bye, but sometimes the person on the other end doesn't let this happen. The longer it goes afterwards, the more likely I am to want to just hang up and let it end, but I never would because that would be impolite.
