    “I’d like to return this phone. Why? Because it’s a jerk, that’s why.”

    “If you don’t think any of this applies to you, you’re out numbered.”
    “If you think you’ve heard this before, hang up and call back the first time.”

    If you are a stalker, breathe heavily into the phone and say nothing.

    Anecdote from my youth ties in with your post. Way back in the 70s (bit of history for the young’uns here), speed dial was the hottest new thing for the touchtone phone (itself replacing the rotary dials): wow, program in a phone number, press one button instead of seven buttons (this before 10-digit dialing) and you were connected to your party.


    Our house was the local gathering place in the summer, since we had an in ground pool. One day, my sister and I and about a dozen of our friends were being more rambunctious than usual, running in and out of the house for the bathroom,get some toys, get the portable eight-track player for some outdoor tunes, driving mom towards the proverbial deep-end. She was in the kitchen making lunches when the phone rang. Instead of saying “Hello”, she answered with the name of the county mental hospital still operating at the time, how may I help you? She heard a very annoyed “Oh, sh!t” on the other end and then the phone went dead.


    She didn’t think about the phone call much until a couple days later when talking to my dad’s boss (also a friend of the family), when his family came to the house to swim one afternoon. The adults got to talking about new technology (ooooh, cable tv!) when my dad’s boss said the new phone he bought was not worth cr@p and how, after he programmed in our phone number and called dad for a job spec, he got the mental health hospital. He ripped the phone from the wall jack, drove straight to Sears and returned his brand new but defective phone.


    Mom finally told him a couple of weeks later, after he got a new phone that actually would connect to our house. He wasn’t too happy, but we all still get a chuckle from it these decades later.

    Where my house is located in between several mountains, I don’t get any cell service at all. I have to use a land line unless I am in my car traveling.

    Card services? Have you been running up some charges we should know about, Yer Maj?

    I wondered when Heather would show up.

    If you don’t know what we’re not doing, press one. If we don’t know what we’re not doing, press two. If you want us to jump up and down like a twit, sorry, you will need to call 1-800-get-jumpy…

    If we don’t know anything, press six. [beep] Hello, this is Microsoft!

    “…this is you last opportunity to lower your interest rate…”

    Is that a promise?
