Same here.Growing up, I remember using one of the black wall mount rotary dial phones in the 50's. Sometimes we had to wait our turn to use it because we had a "party" line (shared with some others in our area).
I remember me and my siblings getting a swat on the butt when mom would catch us listening in on neighbours on the party line. We'd laugh and giggle, and rather than the neighbours getting mad at us, they'd say, "did you hear that so-and-so"? With the addition of... "sounds like someone else is on the line".Same here.
I had 5 siblings, and the woman next door liked to listen in.
So the steps were:
1-Say something mean about her
2-Wait for "HMMPH!" *click*
We had one when I was a kid in Indiana (born the same year as that vid.)My Aunt and Uncle were the only ones I knew who had a party line. I found it interesting.
