Seems logical. They made the call in the first place.

They called for a reason, so if the conversation isn't over, they should call back and continue. If the "callee" is busy, the conversation continues another time.

The one who dialed the number, since they can easily hit redial.

Had to pick one but I think it really depends on the actual call itself

I picked ‘the caller’ but it actually depends on the situation. If the call dropped due to a bad connection on my end, I will call back when I have a better connection.

Yes. Usually the caller. Sometimes the call is fine. I don’t call back. Also, I use landline fir important calls.

If the callee had wanted to talk to me, they would have made the original call.

You initially made the call. It's your responsibility if you want to continue the conversation.

I had to choose one but in reality I don't think it matters.

I pick this one though I really don't think it matters. When this happens with one of my friends, one of will call the other back. Does it matter which? NO.

Many bitter greens are just not to my taste. Cabbage and spinach are great, though!

I hear Broadway is struggling since the pandemic -- perhaps since they've focused too much on vapid, middle-brow spectacle. Where's the next "Odd Couple" or "Death of a Salesman"?
