Wow, I miss those good old phone days!

The Good Old Phone Days!

BOOMER Trivia

I was just thinking about how much I miss the good old phone days. Don’t you?  I remember those cute phone booths, and waiting in line to use one. Wasn’t that so much fun? How about the other great things we no longer get to experience with the older phones.

Cheap Calls !

Let’s just think of a few: Remember those 10 cent calls, and the ‘friendly operator’ who would come on the line and tell you a nickel was due if you wanted to continue the call.  Who reminds you that you’ve gone over your limit these days before it’s too late?

Party Lines !

What about: ‘Party Lines’?   You could get a phone and share the cost with a neighbor.  It’s possible that some  of us did not even know who the other party person was we were sharing the line with. And guess what, mostly people did not eavesdrop on your conversations!

What a good workout!

And those phones never broke! They were so heavy, you could get a workout and talk at the same time.

  What do you miss about the good old phone days ?
See you at the next Post 😉
