Old-School Ways Commence
Well, I did it. I told comcast to install a landline phone. It feels so weird to get something that’s considered so “old school” and almost unnecessary. Almost unnecessary that is…
When our introductory Comcast rate expired (what a joke right?) I discovered that for the same price as our new rate I could have a landline, faster internet and HBO. Too bad Sex and the City went off the air years ago!
I had been contemplating getting a landline since we moved for various, logical reasons. As in the nanny won’t have to use her minutes when I call to check on baby girl during the day. I won’t have to constantly remember where I set my phone down when the hubbs will be calling from “over there”. And slight confession, I simply hate talking on a cell phone. Give me a handset baby!
Now to find that handset. Can you believe that its harder to FIND a real phone these days than it was to make the decision to have a landline installed?? For example, Target does not even have ANY in stores. And believe me I walked up and down every aisle. On Best Buy.com, the phones are listed under office supplies – not even under their own category. And of course, Staples was sold out of the only cordless handset I wanted.
I think I am going to go completely old school and buy an old phone. You know like the one Lucy Ricardo uses. Pottery barn and target.com actually have some great ones. Who knows where this old school way of thinking will lead, especially since the hubbs is pretty dang old school at heart. Next week you might find me sitting on my front porch in a rocking chair sipping iced tea.
