Of course it's a sign of he times that 6 year olds are now almost expected to have a phone.  Was talking to a teacher at the weekend, her view is no issue as long as they do not use them in the classroom or for bullying and it's the camera that becomes the problem

I must have been 12 or 13 before we got a land-line... ::)

press button A, press button B.  What a pallaver that was

I blame the break up with my first real girlfriend on not having a phone at home.  Well that and that I was a bit of an erk with no money at the time and she (eventually) turned out to be gay. 

 rubschin: nope, twas 100% the no phone to blame   Liar:

Right into the early 70's, the Newbury area didn't have direct dialling. We had what looked like a normal "modern" phone but with no dial.



You lifted the handset and, after a few seconds, a lady said "Number Please".
