In middle school I use to call the radio station and requests songs for my crushes.  :fatty:
Mix tapes were the way to go.

VCR rentals at Dillons.  Not just renting the movies, but the actual VCR

Yaaas, this was awesome. The dillons video section. I also used this to rent Super Nintendos and Sega Genesis before I got them for Xmas.

You scrubs don't have landline phones anymore? Wow. Sucks to be poor, or so I've heard . . .

I have a landline and it doesn't have dial tones or busy signals and it rings on my cell phone. Technology, man.

These are some great Certain Things.  Good work everyone.

Remember Encyclopedia sets?  We had a full set in the living room.  Do you need to know something about something?  Well you better know what letter it starts with.

I have a question for Greg. Greg - if you want to get you a pie from pizza shuttle do you still call 776-5577 or is there just an app for that now or how does that all work? for reference not everyone had smart phones when i graduated they were still just first catching on so the word "app" kind of had a different meaning back then thanks for everything greg let's roll

also remember when a huge selling point for cell phones was how many (or few) long distance minutes were included with your plan? i almost can't even wrap my mind around the concept of long distance or collect calls.

Moreover, before everyone had cell phones there were those commercials that would make fun of you for dialing 0 to make a collect call, they would be like dial 10-10-321 or 10-10-9000 idk there were a few companies out there

I remember hearing about my cousin running up a huge long distance phone bill when he lived at my grandparents house for a summer and he’d spend hours on the phone with his cross-country girlfriend. It was a major cautionary tale in our family!
