A character is on the telephone, be it with an acquaintance or a business of some sort. They get the information they were looking for, and then — just click. The conversation is over without so much as a "Goodbye", "Nice talking to you" or "'Till next time." As jarring or rude as this would be in real life (perhaps leading to callbacks asking whether the two parties were cut off), it seems to happen surprisingly often in fiction.
