Are You Old Enough to Remember This? #5

Off Topic: General - Are You Old Enough to Remember This? #5 image 1

Before there were the cell phones and wireless home phones, households had these bad boys, the turn-dial phone. Pretty much, to use this phone, you had to turn the dial on the front to the number you wanted, wait for it to turn back, and then go again. It would feel like an eternity, but if you were fast to do it, then it wasn't a problem. Do you remember having these in your house? Maybe you saw one laying around and you asked, "What is this, Mom/Dad?" Or maybe you saw them at your grandparents house and used one. Let me know in the comments section below! Y'all stay safe and have a wonderful rest of your day and join us next time for when we step back into time!
