Weird Conversations.

One of the things that I am learning while in school, is how to handle meetings and do presentations. The key is how you talk, your tone of voice, your basic sentence structure and so on.

I am calling the AT&T support, our phone line has been acting funny after the storm's two day blackout. We get a sing ring, and after picking up it's nothing but dial tone.

I have heard that in California the sentences usually end up with the accent on the last word, which makes it sound like a question.

"The technician will be out there on THURSDAY." "There is a problem with your LINE." And so on, try saying them, you'll know what i mean. This actually got quite annoying after couple of times, but I've decided to let it slide, however confused I was by that conversation, not knnowsing if the guy was asking me questions.
