Mag 274: Kids these days won't understand


Those were the days, no mobile phones. days of land lines.
Kids of today will not understand the anxiety of calling the person whom we are crushing on, on their telephone.
The kids these days wont understand the fear of their parents picking up the phone.
Kids these days wont understand the sign of One-ring "Its Me", Two rings "Come at the window"
Kids these days won't understand the below conversation

Me dials Carl's number
Carl's mom picks up the phone
Me "Ahh, Is it Mathew's house"

I remember, I used to know all my friend's numbers, my parents work numbers, my grandparents house numbers by heart
Kids these days won't understand the feel of waiting beside this phone, waiting for it to ring and have a long-distance call with some delay time.

Those were the days, the Good Ol' days

  5. The telephone has traveled a long way in growth of technology. I worry about the future generations as everyone depends on these as the primary mode of communication.

  14. I couldn't agree more. When my mobile phone died on me, I promised myself I wouldn't replace it. Thirteen years later and I still haven't........☎
