Did you own a pager back in the day?

if yes, what was your purpose?

I had one in high school because if you didn't have 1 clipped to your pants you were a super loser.

  • Yup! I had a bright neon green one in high school (so everyone knew I had one LOL) and I basically got it because everyone else had one lol...I mean I still had to wait til I got home or to a payphone to talk to whoever had paged me and anyone who would page me was already at school with me LOL
