For those of you who remember the picture above—raise your hands! I know I’m dating myself with this next comment…Do you remember party lines? You’d pick up the phone and the party that shared your phone line would be talking away totally oblivious to your need to make a phone call. Plus, there were no secrets, because what you said was always heard by others!
Today our kids have digital phones, no longer connected to a physical wire, and no longer overheard by another party on the line!
