Call Waiting.

I tasked Emma with returning a phone call from a friend.

After a while she came in and said, "Umm, Mom this phone is broken."

"Broken?" I responded. "What is wrong with it?"

"Well, I dial the number and it doesn't ring. It just beeps."

"Beeps how?" I asked silently cursing Comcast.

"Ehh...Ehh...Ehh"

"Oh, a busy signal!"

"What's that?" Emma asked.

Times have changed. With everyone in the world having call waiting...I cannot remember the last time I heard a busy signal. I guess it is possible Emma had never heard one at all before today. Too Funny!

Believe it or not, my parents refuse to get call waiting. Never had it, never will (same goes for caller ID). Thankfully, if we get a busy signal, we now just call their cell phone.

I'm probably dating myself here, but when I was a kid we had a party line. Anyone remember those?
