Home Telephone Use.


Before he died, my father got a great laugh, when I told him I didn’t like being on the phone much at home.  I am on the phone all day at work, plus with social media at home, who needs telephones? 🙂

You wouldn’t know it going back to childhood.  There were three kids in the house.  My father would become annoyed quickly when three kids plus Mom were on the phone. It wasn’t as though HE wanted to use the phone, mind you.  It may have been that generation, because my father-in-law was the same about the phone.  As adults, if you called them on the phone, they just wanted the basics, “Everyone OK?  Yes Dad.  Good speaking with you.  Bye.”

My, how things change.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
