How many of you remember when there was a phone number you could call to get the time?

I'm internally chuckling at the thought of anyone below the age of 40 processing that piece of information.

I remember my dad had an expensive Mantle Clock he had to keep wound every day. He wouldn’t let me touch it for fear I would overwind it.

This belongs in an "old school" thread.  lol  Maybe @IU Scottcan start one?  We can discuss the pros and cons of a rotary phone with a party line.

Wind a clock?  What sort of witchcraft is this?

:) (did i do the right?)

Yessir...

We had a controller one time reset the facility clocks (which were set to GMT) for DST. Flight  Strips were popping out 30 minutes after aircrafts proposed departure time when normally they print 30 minutes prior to proposed departure. 

Our sup not too politely explained GMT doesn't do DST... He threw a couple of other adjectives in, but forum rules and all 🙂

Doing a double decker tour of London the guide asked who can see Big Ben? About half the bus raised their hands. Of course he had fun with that.

For any of you fellow old timers who need a laugh here are two teenagers trying to figure out how to use a rotary phone. 
 

 

God... the country is being left to them??? We're in deep doo-doo.
