One was delivered yesterday. It went straight to the recyclable bin, and I wondered...
Yes, but not lately
Yes, all my life. Less now with the internet, but I still use it.
Probably about 10 years ago. Before that it was quite often. :)
In all the fairness, the pages weren't yellow to begin with, only after I had stopped using them.
Yes. In fact, I used it just the other day. :)
Turned a few into houses.
I've turned a few into mush by shooting them with an air rifle.
You guys have the yellow pages? 乂^◡^乂
Tried to recently, but so many businesses don't list there anymore. Easier to search on the net.
Yep and the whitepages too. Yes, they still exist. lol I even know how to use a rotary phone! lmao
I had a friend's kid with me one day for a "take your child to work day" because neither of them could. At one stop she became fascinated with the rotary phone...lol I am truly amazed at what has become obsolete within my lifetime.
My great Grandma had one on the wall with the extra-long cord, that thing seemed to stretch across my whole world. lol And it was canary yellow! I know what you mean :)
Well dayum...that was exactly what she was looking at that day...wall, rotary, long-ass cord, and canary yellow to boot! Lol
No way, that's too much! Oh you know what, I bet they got it out of the old Sears-Roebuck catalogue, she lived in that thing and most of the stuff she purchased for the house came directly out of that catalogue.
My Great Grandad would hide them from her. lmao He hated that phone because that was when you had to pay for long distance calls by the minute. I think that may have been the only thing that I ever saw him genuinely angry about, but they never fought, he'd grind his teeth and trudge on.
Originally, we had a black wall phone from the phone company. It was the house extention of our business phone. It was the only phone we had until I was a teen.
Not only did you pay per minute for long distance, business phones were charged per local call, as well.
Yep, still do.
Not anymore. Now they go straight into the recycling bin for me as well. I wish there was a way to opt out, it seems like such a waste.
Just yesterday. I have a phone book from 1980 that lists all the people and addresses for everyone in town. I love that book.
Been years since I did.
Yes, and we still need them.
