What Things are You Thinking of Now as 20th Century?

For me?  Going to the mall and shopping is one.  Making telephone calls and mailing bills are two more.

 

How about you?  Anything else that surprises you now about how you think or what you want to do?

I'm such a dinosaur, I still speak to people on the phone (I like hearing their voices) and pay some of my bills by mail.

A while ago I had to have a document notarized and returned.

 

Had no idea how to find a stamp.  Had to ask.  Gone like pay phones.

I am the same except I do "all" by mail.

Re: What Things are You Thinking of Now as 20th Century?

Was so thrilled in the 80's when our family got a v.c.r. Now if

I miss something on t.v. I just look for it on our smart t.v.,

YouTube, etc.

 

Also think back on all the times going out to rent movies,

drive there, pay to rent the movie then the next day return it,

now can just search for a movie online or t.v. in minutes and

watch it if its available.

@KoKtoo - you didn't think to maybe go to the post office for a stamp?  


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

How about those big old CRT screens that came in orange and green?  

 

Pagers!
