In Italy people answer the phone with "Pronto", which is Italian for "Ready", the same prompt used by BBC BASIC

@fraggle I don't know whether I'll be able to answer the phone now that I've realized this. :D

@valhalla @fraggle

I assume that means that non-Italian speaking English speakers who phone Italians are always saying things like "Hold on! Give me a moment!" as their reply.

@LionsPhil hehe yeah I just found this myself while image searching
