Facepalm I'd say they need to teach them how to tell time rather than replace the clocks!!

"Okay, that's a start!"

Lol

Oh, that was painful. Kinda hard to believe they've never seen
how it's done in an "old" tv show or movie, wouldn't even have
to go back that many years. 1dunno1 (@Wingsprint you
could help them out in this department! Wink)

I remember going to grandmamas house and picking up the phone to hear Ruth and Ethel gossiping. I was like, WTF? She told me it was a party line. Everyone on that road was on the same line, you had to wait for your turn to talk.
Their only water was from a well. It was all good until the cat fell into it. They didn’t know, they tried for a while to figure out why the water tasted bad. Soon after that, the county ran a water line through. I guess God heard their prayers.

@Capnron Poor kitty, and people too! :(

I remember an original owner (c. 1950) neighbor
recounting how the phone prefix used to be a word,
in her case "Ocean" (followed by the four-digit
extension). Can't recall if this was for the street, whole
neighborhood or even town.

Until she passed several years ago past the age of 100
years, she always answered the phone reciting her phone
number (xxx-xxxx).

Telling the time will be like speaking in code.  Chuckle

I remember used to be able to hack the rotary phone and dial numbers just by clicking the hangup button.

Actually there used to be this thing too called phreaking, and that's where people tried to beat the phone company by playing tones into the receiver, tricking it into thinking you had deposited money.
