Does it bother you when characters don't say "goodbye" to each other on the phone in movies and TV shows?

It bothers me a lot more than it probably should. I understand that it's to save time and keep the action moving forward but I mean, I can't think of very many movies or TV episodes where every single line of dialogue is absolutely crucial to the plot anyway. Surely they could find somewhere else to save those two seconds of screen time. Plus it always kind of takes me out of what I'm watching because people never just hang up on each other in real life (not that movies need to be a 100% accurate reflection of real life, of course). What do you guys think?
