I shall now write with regard to phones as though you and I are common cave dwellers. Land lines RULE. Oh, so you say you don’t know what a Land Line is?? Let me progress. These are phones which don’t require touch tone anything, don’t necessarily give you poor service (Verizon) and when you actually sit on it, it doesn’t call an ex girlfriend pissing your wife off. Rotary phones, which once existed, were wonderful. These were phones allowing you to make a call when forcefully placing your finger in an obviously circular area rotating it seven times only to reach the presumed innocent recipient.
They were strange phones where,when dialing, you didn’t hear a rap song or a Jerry Seinfeld tune. Instead, you received a buzzer dictating whether the said recipient wished to talk to you or not.
Because I love my late Father, I can’t even get into call waiting. That was a no no no.
