When you "answer" your cell phone even though it did NOT ring, in order to avoid speaking to someone annoying (1) who has walked up to you, or (2) called you on your phone.
Phoney calls:

(1)

{Annoying person walks up to you and starts talking}
"Hi, how's it going?"

{You} "Wait, hold one, my cell phone is vibrating."
{Reach into pocket, pull out phone, flip it open} "Oh man, I'm gonna have to take this. Sorry. We'll talk later.
{Walk away and fake a phone conversation}

(2)

{Someone annoying calls you from a NEW phone number, that you do NOT have programmed into your phone, so you "accidentally" answer it to see who it is}

{Annoying person} "Hi. How's it going?"

{You} "Oh great. Wait. Hey, I got another call coming in, it's pretty important, so I guess I'm gonna have to let you go. Sorry. Call back soon. Bye. {You hang up and NEVER answer that phone number again!}

2) To avoid awkward silences/ conversations/ people
