All you young chicks ...

will never know the satisfaction that comes from slamming down he receiver on an old-style rotary hone. Believe me, pushing the button on a cell or a cordless to hang up when you're really pissed just lacks that solid "thunk!"

I as thinking about this as I finally had to hang up on the Fraternal Order of Police just now--the pushy representative absolutely wouldn't take no for an answer!

  • Maybe not a rotary phone but I still get to slam down my phone at work after talking to dumbasses :) It is much more relieving than tapping an icon on a screen.

  • LOL! I worked with a guy who had such a bad temper he'd break the phone receiver once a week. Feels sooooo good right?! Nothing like beating the crap out of a phone!

  • I don't feel bad about hanging up on telemarketers or slamming the door in their face. It's my time and I'll do what I want with it.

    And yes, I loooove the old phones

  • I know. Hitting "END" doesn't do it for me.
