    Note my initial corrections above. I don't really understand the question though. Do I understand correctly that someone at your home is telephoning you at the office? If so, and you answer the phone, it would be odd for them to ask "Are you there yet?" You are clearly at the office. You answered the phone!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
