Ah the Telephone

Ah the telephone

The day the telephone was invented. Wonder
what people thought of it back then? It took
a long time for people to get used to it,
to even think about wanting one. Some people
probably like it, some probably thought it
was evil. Not many had a phone back then, it
was expensive to have one then.

Ah the telephone. Wonder what people would
think about the phones today? Not only did
the phones change, the phone services too.
And the phone lines are used in so many ways
today, the Computer, cable, there's wire
systems in air planes. From the old crank
phone, rotary dial phone, touch tone,
cordless, car phones. So many different
styles, colors, sizes.

Ah the telephone. You see people everywhere,
in a car, or walking with a phone. People
driving, looks like their glued to the phone,
stuck up to their ear. You go into a restaurant,
and there's always a phone going off, talking
when their suppose to be eating. Shopping, and
even in Church, you hear one ring. Turn them
off once in awhile. What would we do without
telephones?
