|Assunto:||Wellington/Telephone conversation- Quem gostaria?|
It's funny. I consider the american way very impolite in portuguese.It sounds too impersonal, too straight forward.
If I have a conversation with someone even if it is a cashier (someone I don't need to exchange many words) I call them by their name first and if it's not on them, I usually ask for it . On the telefone, I usually say "bom dia, quem fala?" so I can go on with "oi fulano, tudo bem".
I don't think we are supposed to recognize every voice on the phone. So it's not a big deal to ask for someone's name. Of course, everything depends on the intonation
When someone that I know say something as "Olá, posso falar com o fulano de tal?" I usually answer "oi fulano, tudo bem? Como vai? Tudo jóia!" in a way I can reprehend him or her
