kids today will never understand laying on the floor talking on the phone that has a cord attached to the wall
Reminds me of my college days! Waiting for that "call" from my beau or family on dorm hall phone!
Our phone wasn't attached to the wall like this one. It was seated on a table with a long cable attaching it to the phone jack, so I could snake the cord under the nearest door for privacy.
The hours spent on the phone. The telephone company operator breaking in on a call because a seriously upset dad couldn't get a call to his home it was always busy. Before call waiting and affordable home answering machine S.
I actually spent the first $100 I'd ever saved on one, only to be sorely disappointed when I realized it wouldn't reach from my desk to the bed!
Old school pencil sharpener, I remember dreading to get up and sharpen my pencil in class. Everyone looks up and watches ya and then you take the pencil out and have to turn it a different way to get the other side sharp as well.
