Re: For older readers... we had it tough!
We used to have a rotary-dial phone. But we had to get rid of it. Too many companies use those stupid automated "Your call is important to us, but not important enough to have a real person answer you. Press 1 if you want to hear how important you are to us. Press 2 if you want to be put on hold for an hour while we force-feed our advertising jingle into your ears..." And that doesn't work with rotary dial phones. Dial 1, and it doesn't register. So the system hangs up instead of putting you through to a real person.
I've heard that a local swimming had to replace its old round-dial clock, because kids couldn't read a clock that wasn't digital.
