I may be old, but at least when I was growing up we did not have a rotary phone it had buttons. Even our kids, who are teenagers do not know life outside a cordless phone let alone a big rotary one.

I remember as a kid feverishly trying to call in to radio stations to win a contest or request a song, usually with no luck even getting through. I could not imagine the monotony of trying to use a dial phone. We had a specific line just for us kids, and even then with 5 of us it was a lot of waiting around to use the it.

Kids today, it's so funny  how you see little 6 year olds with an I-Phone, they have no idea how good they have it.
