Dial and Tribulation



billkozyBillkozy on 11/07/2008

DialandTribulation Photo Were you ever ironing your clothes when the phone rang and you reflexively put the iron to your ear? No, me neither.

Or did you ever hear about the ditzy girlfriend who was disturbed and puzzled over her cell phone's location tracing system? Her boyfriend called her on the new cell phone he had bought for her while she was grocery shopping, and she told him how much she enjoyed the phone then asked him, "But how did you know to call me at the the supermarket?"

Are telemarketers still a source of tribulation for you? Well, first you should register with the government's "Do Not Call" registry at www.donotcall.gov. And if you're still bothered on the phone by pesky sales calls here are a number of other suggestions:
1. In the middle of the caller's memorized sales pitch, interrupt with, "What causes a hiccup?"
2. When someone asks whether a spouse is at home, "Yes, but I never allow him/her to talk to strangers.
3. Use your touch-tone phone to annoy the caller by playing, "Mary Had a Little Lamb." 6-5-4-5

Okay enough silliness. The following quiz features some actual "Dial" and Tribulation over the course of the history of that wonderful invention, the telephone; problems and pitfalls the public and the phone companies have faced over the years.

Good luck to you, and please rate the quiz if you have a chance afterward. Any questions, just give me a call, and no, contrary to rumor, my answering machine does not say: "Hi! Bill's answering machine is out of servive, but this is his refrigerator. You may speak your message, and I'll stick it to myself with one of these magnets so Bill can see it later."
Best wishes,
Bill
