Our real phone looked very similar to this model and it set on a shelf in the hall. You had to stand there to talk.
I'm not that old either but I remember having a phone like that, you had a cord holding you stationary???

Do you know 500 people? I have around 50 Facebook friends. If I don't know you in real life, more than a few minute interaction, you don't get added to my friends.
