    Crazy to think that. Also, windows in a car that have to be rolled down by hand, cassette players, or TV with an antenna.
    I'm sure there's more

    We were watching a movie the other day and the guy had a beeper. I had to explain to my kids what it was for. As I was explaining it, I realized how stupid it was

    The distinct pleasure of blowing on cartridges to get them to work.

    Almost 13 and never seen a payphone, even though they still do exist? What? Do you let him leave the house?

    Who remembers party lines. My grandparents had one. You had to watch what you said. Some old biddie could be listening in. Now just the NSA listens in.

    My father in law is a real southern redneck. Not white trash. But he's pretty redkneckish. Anyways, we went out to dinner one night and he used his debit card for the first time at a restaurant. He had no clue what was going on. He thought the waiter was trying to steal from him.

    I had one for several years. The good old days where you called people back on your own schedule, when you could get to a phone.
    Nowadays with cellphones if you don't respond in under 60 seconds you get blown up with texting, email, voicemail, etc.
    Lately I actually enjoy finding areas with no cell phone service.

    I gave my friend's 5 year old kid 20 cents the other day and told him there was a time when he could have made two calls with that...he just stared at me confused.
