It’s Friday, it’s March, and you’re probably wishing you were at the park or watching basketball or doing anything other than sitting at your place of employment, manning a phone or typing on a computer. I know that’s how I feel! So, to lighten up your afternoon and get reacquainted with some technology from the not-too-distant past, here’s a great “Kids React To” video from the Fine Brothers. They do a bunch of these sorts of videos about everything from old technology to viral videos, and this is probably one of my favorite ones. It’s elementary school kids reacting to a rotary dial telephone.
It must be a sign of my age that when I was that age, I regularly used a rotary dial telephone at my grandmother’s house (and a push-button phone at my parents’ place) so even then I wasn’t lost on rotary dial. Then again, I also didn’t grow up with a smartphone or even a cordless phone, so looking at a rotary phone must be like looking at a percolator to them.Technorati Tags: fine brothers, fun friday videos, funny videos, kids react, kids react to, kids react to rotary phones, rotary phone, rotary phones, rotary-dial telephone, telephones, videos, vintage technology
