    Without him, how would Gary the Retard and all those dumb wackpackers be able to call into the Stern show?

    Vacation curse strikes again!

    Adding insult to injury, the last words he heard before he died were :Sorry your call cannot be accepted, please hang up and try your call again.

    And those old, wall, rotary phones weighed like 12 pounds. You could brain someone with one of those.

    I threw a 3-foot Mickey Mouse phone at my brother for fighting on the phone with his girlfriend for 2 hours.

    I still have three phones with cords in my house. I hate not being able to find a phone when it rings.

    what I miss is a pay phone that actually works, for when you forget your phone, or the battery dies
    Here, the pay phones aren't supplied by the phone company, they're purchased and supplied by vendors- and they're pure shit. they cost at least 75 cents, if they work at all. Phone booths? ha, stand outside in the rain next to a Harley warming up

    I had to call my cell phone four times yesterday morning, only to finally find it in the drawer of my nightstand. :facepalm:
