Hi all, I saw a sentence from an article and I wonder if it's right?
I saw a call from my husband on my way to the meeting. But surprisingly, the moment I picked up the phone, he launched into a rant about how the food I had made was no good. I was angry to hear that.

Question: Is "see a call" a phrase and mean "receive a call"

    No, it's not a standard phrase (about phone calls traditionally). Presumably it refers to the modern kind of phone call where you can see on your machine who is calling you.
