Mom: In my day, you got a pen for graduation and that was your pen! Cathy: Your pen? Mom: Your pen for life! No drawers of dried-up ball points! No bulk-buy cartons of replacements! Your pen was your pen! Which you kept by your phone! One phone, made to last a lifetime, which actually lasted a lifetime! No 50-page user guide... no 1-800 hotline... no one ever threw out a phone because "it wasn't worth it to get it fixed"!! Hair dryers lasted decades! Radios were built for life! Toasters... TVs... coffee pots... watches... you got one, and that was that! People felt accomplished, because when we bought something, we were all done buying it! People felt trust, because things worked as they were supposed to... and if they didn't, the nice man at the store would feel just awful, and not sleep a wink until he'd solved the problem!! Cathy: Get any of that, Dad? Dad: No. Tape jam. Dead battery. View finder fell off. Then. Now.
