ATLANTA, GA – 27-year-old Rabiya Khan was awoken by loud, consistent yelling on Saturday morning at her parent’s home in suburban Atlanta.

Visiting her parents for Memorial Day weekend, loud yelling in the early hours of the weekend isn’t uncommon. She explains, “They’re calling my relatives in Pakistan. With the time difference it makes sense to call them at 8 or 9 AM.”

Upon venturing downstairs, Fuss Class News found Ms. Khan’s mother, Shahnaz Khan, loudly screaming into the mouthpiece of her cordless phone.

“YES. YES EVERYONE IS GREAT. YES CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES. RABIYA JUST STARTED HER NEW JOB AT – WHAT? HELLO? CAN YOU HEAR ME?”

“The yelling is a mystery,” says Ms. Khan, a software engineer, “My parents are assuming the same call quality they had in 1995. I’ve tried explaining it to them but these are the same people who insist their Android phones from 5 years ago are also just fine.”

Upon asking Ms. Khan’s relatives in Pakistan, they felt quite differently, “We think poor Shahnaz has a hearing problem and just can’t hear us. Either that or we just assumed Americans love yelling.”
