Chinese Phone Manners

I just got a call on our fixed phone.

I pickup, say my name and someone blurts.

“Is x there”, (x being my better half)

I say in Chinese, “No, she isn’t home”

About to ask whether I can take a message, I hear “oh oh, tuut, tuut, tuut, tuut, tuut”

He apparently hung up and stupefait I listened a bit more to the sound of my phone.
