The gender today is the smell of gasoline and sound of a dial-up modem.
@genderoftheday this is how I spent my youth
When I moved to our current residence, we had GTE for our rural phone service and we could still dial 4 digits within our exchange. They charged an extra $2 for touchtone dialing. When I ordered my phone service, I demanded pulse dialing, avoiding the 2$ charge knowing full well, they had no way of providing only pulse dialing. We also could dial 7 digits within our area code long after ma bell had forced 10 digit dialing on their victims.
