That next-to-last one is inaccurate. Who remembers their own number? :)
Me! I have to tell it to people all the time.
They forgot the following situations:
A = After cell phones B = Before cell phones
At the grocery store, forgot what significant other wanted.
(A) Call and ask.
(B) Find a pay phone, crap, out of order or don’t have any quarters.
Just got into an accident on the road.
(A) Call police, loved ones, insurance company, tow truck.
(B) You’re fucked.
Can’t remember someone’s phone number.
(A) Look it up on your phone via contacts list or Internet.
(B) Find a phone book, and hope they’re listed.
1. B) Screw them, they get nothing for not coming with and not writing it down.
2. B) You walk to the nearest gas station, or a kind person pulls over to help you.
3. B) Get out your address book.
Guilty of the last one. Being as socially awkward as I am I tend to hide behind my phone.
The second one with the cell phone should be more like “Whew! They didn’t pick up! Now I don’t have to actually talk to someone!!” Haha.
haha amen…. I always leave a well thought out voice mail and hope they will return the favor for me.
My wife is definitely guilty of the 2nd one.
I’m amused that we still use the term “dial” as the verb to refer to entering the digits, as in “I think I dialed the wrong number”, when every phone system went touch-tone in the mid-’80s. Is there a new term?
Same goes for “roll down the window” in a car!
I asked my 18 year old niece if she had ever dialed a phone. She said “yeah, that toy phone I used to have!” (the Fischer Price one with the googly eyes). We use the word “dial tone” too.
Key in the phone number
Also, most of the plots on “Seinfeld” never would have happened after cell phones. So many missed connections! :)
