Telephones

Do you remember that we had the phone cooked last week during a storm? Well, I hooked up the land line telephone. It dawned on me yesterday that I hadn't been bothered by telemarketers since. Then I waited for my o2 guy to call... He didn't.

This morning, Jack and Jill went wild, someone was here! Yep, my o2 delivery. I asked him if he had tried to call and he told me that he had tried many times. Hmm, time to check that cheap phone. I had dial tone. Then I put my reading glasses on and looked at the black on black buttons. I had somehow shut the ringer off when I transferred it from my womb to the living room.

I must tell you, these have been the most peaceful days... I will remember about that ringer button - the next time I need peace and quiet!

  4. I grew up without a phone even though I worked at the old switchboard in my small town parttime. Now I think I would feel deserted without one. Not that I talk on it that much, it's just knowing it's there handy.

  5. I hate talking on the phone. I have enough trouble with face to face speech let alone talking on the phone. I am off now to find the ringer button and turn it off. Great tip lol xx

  6. Phones can be such a nuisance sometimes -- but a necessary one. Glad you got your 02!
