surfer's voice

A person at the other end of a phone call who is surfing the Web and barely listening to you. A surfer's voice contains a lot of "uh-huh," "yeah," "sure" and similar responses. The sound of the occasional tapping of keys in the background is a major clue that the person is not really listening.
