a rotary phone?


I called a govt. office today and got an automated message.  The first question was to ask if I had a push button phone.  Im trying to think of the last time I saw a rotary phone.  

Do you have a rotary phone?  

If you do, is that your only phone or do you also have a push button phone?

I have a rotary in my home, but they do not work when you have digital cable/phone, and before digital phone, it didn't really work cuz of the way phone lines are updated since back in the "dark ages".  Took extra long to dial - was really comical.  I got the rotary from my parents old house - thought it would be fun to have and show the grandkids.
