I am old enough that I still remember a few homes of my friends had one of those. I also remember when you had to ring for the operator and then hang up while she called them. When she got an answer, she would connect you both. The handle to ring was on the big black box on the wall and you cranked the handle about three times. Remember when Andy would askthe operator to connect him with someone in town? Well, when I lived on the Cape as a kid, that is what we did. Good Grief! I am oooold.

The Express Lane

I was in the six item express lane at the store quietly fuming.

Completely ignoring the sign, the woman ahead of me had slipped into the check-out line pushing a cart piled high with groceries.

Imagine my delight when the cashier beckoned the woman to come forward looked into the cart and asked sweetly, "So which six items would you like to buy?"

Wouldn't it be great if that happened more often?
