Whatever happened to “Goodbye”?

The last several months I’ve seen new movies where the person is talking on the phone hangs up without a goodbye, see you later, or any other of sign-off. Is that a trend today? You don’t say goodbye at the end of a phone conversation anymore? Have proper phone etiquette changed to no proper sign-off? What’s next? No ‘Hello’? Just pick up the phone and answer “yea” and when you’re done just hang up. How do you know the other person is finished with the phone conversation?

Now, you may say it’s only the movies trying to save a little time (between a half second to a couple) by not having their characters saying goodbye. But it happens in real life as well.

Good manners seems to be disappearing every day. What do you think?
