I do the exact same thing. I swear, so many people don't realize that they asked a yes/no question and that the word "No" is a perfectly legitimate response.
I also once worked for a company that developed telephone applications ("Press 1 to renew your prescription....") and we had a few dedicated phone lines for testing. One was always busy, another would never answer. I used to enjoy giving out those phone numbers.
