    Then… uh… what about your fridge? Is it…? Yes, it’s running and, yes, I’d better go catch it. Oh, what about Ms. Bath, first na-…? Anita? No, she’s not here.

    When we first got our phone it was a party line…Now and then I’d listen in until I’d hear, “If someone else is on this line, hang up…” I’d hang up real fast so they would not know it was me like they could see too….

    “… Does your mama know you’re playing with the phone, Jimmy?”
    .
    Aaah, the joys of living in a small town where everybody knows everybody.
    .
    Then there was, “Is your refrigerator running? Well, I’ll try to catch it when it comes around the corner.”

    Say it fast ‘I need a bath’

    Once I got a wrong number,and it was answered by a machine. Back when those machines were new. The guy had such a self important voice, he sounded like he thought he was so special because he had a machine to answer his phone for him. He also said his number. I told everyone at school. He got a lot of calls, Price Albert, farting noises, etc.

    Luckily this was before Caller I D came along.

    A friend of mine worked at a bar. He once received a phone call, ‘Is Pat Mehoff there?’
    He called out Pat Mehoff several times … no response.
    The caller asked, ‘Well, is his brother Jack there?’
    As my friend explained it, ‘I said it once…’

    Mostly I have a phone so my wife can call me. “Ignore” comes in a distant second.

    I am actually used to calling a telephone “Customer Premises Equipment,” (CPE) or an “End Point Device,” which also covers fax machines, modems, routers, alarm systems …

    hard to be a teenager now and do phony phone calls with caller ID, if you don;t recognize the name (and sometimes if you do) you let the machine answer it
