When was the last time you.....

  • got up out of your seat to change the channel on the TV?
  • rolled down a car window without just pushing a button?
  • opened a garage door by hand?
  • wound your watch?
  • got a busy signal?

The school TV's require hand-to-button channel changing, so, since my school VCR uses channel 3 and the DVD player uses ch. 4, I do this every time I use the TV.
Until I bought the newest car in 2006, I had to crank the windows by hand -- and I prefer it.
I always open the garage door by hand since it's the only way to do it.
I do still own one wind up watch, but I haven't worn it in about a year.
And, no one gets busy signals now: you get "The line is busy. For a small fee, Qwest will continue to try this number....." and then you hang up in disgust.

The only one that continues is the busy signal...that is before the automated operator...or the operator from a foreign country picks up the call.

Paperback is right, I don't get a busy signal. The phones just rings until the automated operator picks up....or it sends through "push-button purgatory".

Push-Button Purgatory. I love it.
