I made tentative plans to meet a friend who was in the city on business. Unfortunately, her meeting went too late for us to actually meet in person because of where I live. So, we spent almost two hours on the phone, (not a cell phone) very late into the night getting caught up. Imagine using a landline phone to communicate... kind of old fashion huh. However, it is still a very effective way of communicating believe it or not.
10 good things about having a landline phone
10 - Does not die in mid conversation
9 - Does not have to be affixed to your body
8 - Feels like you’re actually talking to someone and not into thin air
7 - You don’t have to say…”“Can you hear, how about now, or "how do I sound"…do you hear the echo, too?”
6 - You don’t feel pressure to end the call because of limited minutes
5 –You know when the line goes silent it is not because the phone died
4 - You know when you call someone they are where you called
3 - It is only used for one purpose, talking
2 - It does not call random people on its own
Number 1 reason - I know every time I pick up the phone I can actually call out because it does not rely on batteries, cell coverage, or minutes available, and it's one less thing for me to worry about.
