When asked to dial his dad's cellphone, he started at zero & moved to the required number each time. YIKES! Kids today call a rotary phone "old fashioned"
We are acquiring older items for our 1967 home we just purchased. We wanted to update the house but keep a bit of history in the process. We found this old Princess style phone at a rummage sale at the local antique shop to put in one of the rooms. It didn't dawn on us that our daughters would have NO idea how to use it. First they tried to push button...then we grabbed the camera! Our 14 year old said, "Oh, that's why the say hang up!" Kids were schooled on 1980's telecommunications this morning! FUNNY!
