    • Don’t I wish. At least kids here in the US would go through this and be clueless. Also they were trying to make a call, and no one even close to their age actually talks on a phone, they text or Instagram each other. Hugs

      • Indeed! Same here, in the main.
        Almost all business is (initially) conducted by email, text or ”Please send us a WhatsApp.”

        In certain ways this is better as we have hard evidence when a client places an order – we have had experience of people saying things such as (paraphrase): ” But I asked for pink icing with flowers”
        And yet the email we received confirms it was blue icing.
        Only happens on the odd occasion, but it helps our records.
        I have a vintage black phone ( as an ornament) so I’m pretty sure my crew know how it works, even if it’s not connected.

  3. My six year old granddaughter will never know a communication device she can’t see the person she’s talking with.

    • My grandfather went from horse and buggy to seeing the spaces shuttle. He love the new things and enjoyed the discoveries made. I wonder how I will view the coming changes in our world, our reality when I am 20 to 30 years older? I hope I keep learning and love all the new discoveries. Hugs

      • My grandfather once told me he was the first person in his village to own a bicycle! He was considered ”rich”

        • I love it. All of this makes me wonder why some people want to live by several thousand years old ideas of science, health, and ways of living. It makes no sense to me at all. They seem terrified to admit live can be and has gotten better over time. Hugs

          • For many people, there’s comfort and security in “the old ways.” This is generally because they don’t understand “the new ways” and it makes them uncomfortable. And they don’t want to feel “stupid” when people try to educate them.

            Personally, I’ve always welcomed progress. Sure, occasionally I might experience a bit of nostalgia … but it doesn’t last long. 🙂

          • As a young man (kid probably) My Grandad – Harry Pearce – served as a batman to an officer aboard a battleship during the war ( I’m damned if I can remember the name of the ship, I must ask my dad) , was a semi-professional boxer for a time and ran his own small taxi firm with a couple of American Packards.
            My dad learned to drive in one of them and crashed into a lamppost on his first lesson while reversing out the drive!

      • The small tiown in Maine i grew up in had “land lines” and my parents till have that old rotatry phone. Thiers hangs on the wall though. Dad doesn’t like the new push button. He says there is no replacement for dialing a number the way it was always meant to be. Adter all it is called “dialing” for a reason.

        • Love it. Yes we had landlines. growing up. In face we still had a landline when we bought this house in 2007. We couldn’t see keeping a landline and have our cells also. So we got rid of them. Hugs
