F&%@ing cell phone users. Now I'll never be able to phone anyone cause it's quite likely that I won't be able to coordinate my fingers to dial the extra numbers.

My bookies gonna go broke. [cry]

I remember when I was a kid, 5 or 6, maybe 7 years old, we didn't even use 7 digits. For local calls we just used five. The prefix here is 699, but we got away with dialing 9-1234, or whatever the phone number was.

Actually it starts in Alberta today too, but the system will still connect you with a warning. Septmeber 8th it goes to mandatory 10 digit dialing.

When I was a kid on the farm, we still had the old crank phones. 'Town' had dial phones where you only had to dial four (or five?) digits. Mum and I went to the 'city' once and tried to call my cousin. After a number of tries, we asked for help from a passerby and were told we had to dial all seven digits!

I think kiddies should stay home with their parents until getting a steady job. No cell phones, no fax, no SMS or any technological crap. In my old days I used to be the only one in the phonebook with a strange lastname, but now it has been infested.
