u/kimmyreichandthen Dec 09 '21

so lucky that I am 21 years old and got the joke. Too bad people born after 2001 got their memories about old landline phones after the 2001 phone cord incident

u/Bannedbookweek Dec 09 '21

People under 20 that have consumed any form of media made in the early 2000’s or the 20th century or any form of media that portrays the early 2000s or the 20th century: hahaha

u/asdaaaaaaaa Dec 09 '21

Aw man, I didn't even realize younger kids would have never seen a landline style phone and not get the joke. Man, I'm not even old really and things have changed so much since I was a kid, it's nuts.

128

u/Budget_Inevitable721 Dec 09 '21

If you think people under 20 don't know what a landline is you're crazy. Maybe a toddler might not fully understand but Fisher Price still makes their classic phone with wheels for babies. It's in movies and shit.

u/NUMBERS2357 Dec 09 '21

When I was a kid I knew that back in the day you had to have the operator connect you to whoever you wanted to call, because of Bugs Bunny cartoons.

I had rotary phone toys and we all figured out how to dial them despite not knowing anyone that owned a real one.

Literally my 18 month old will call an old style telephone a “phone”. She also calls iPhones “phones”. Babies are smart.

u/dane83 Dec 09 '21

What? Landline phones still exist in like... every business. If they work a job where they've ever had to answer a phone call, they've probably used a landline phone.

...possible exceptions are for app based gig jobs.

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/jun/29/pwc-hangs-up-on-landlines-in-shift-to-mobile-first-culture Pwc got rid of desk phones a few years ago.

I work at a software company and we got rid of ours in the last year or so.

1

u/Noltonn Dec 09 '21

Yeah, seriously. Not just offices. Emergency phones (the ones that usually directly connect through to a safety officer or the front desk) in schools still exist too. Maybe not everywhere but they're still things, and they look like this too.

I'd be impressed if you could find a normal 12 year old, showed them this joke, and didn't know what it was about.

u/Ringosis Dec 09 '21

Do you know what this is? Were you alive in the 20s?

4

u/lacheur42 Dec 09 '21

My grandmother still had one of those when I was a kid. I was born in 1980.

It was on a "party line", where everyone in the valley's phone would ring, except you had a special ring when it was for you. So you'd have to sit there and listen for "short short long" or whatever, then race to pick up the phone before they hung up. All the neighbors could pick up and listen in, so there were no secrets.

8

u/General_Lee_Wright Dec 09 '21

A couple of my favorite things of this are:

The phone icon on your smart phone is a landline receiver. Most kids haven’t ever actually used one of those.

The save icon in Word and most computer processes is a 3.5 floppy disk. No one under 20 has ever used on of those.

u/LaconicalAudio Dec 09 '21

The same is probably true for you.

The cc and bcc for emails stands for "carbon copy" and "blind carbon copy"

From when you typed on carbon paper to make multiple copies.

u/spacechimp Dec 09 '21

Dear god I'm old.

u/asdaaaaaaaa Dec 09 '21

Agreed. I honestly haven't seen a normal landline receiver in ages, except for retail jobs. Most places I've seen have switched to VOIP or just use cell phones.

1

u/LeoRidesHisBike Dec 09 '21

Hell, I'm in my 40s and haven't used a DVD on my PC in 7 or 8 years. I bet a ton of kids have never even used a CD, DVD, or BluRay for anything. Tons of people buy Xbox or PS games exclusively digitally now, despite all the pushback from old-schoolers.

u/DBrody6 Dec 09 '21

Oh my god, thank you for explaining it. I was trying to think of vulgar puns leading to fake disbelief, I couldn't make the connection it was a goddamn phone.

u/Noltonn Dec 09 '21

I mean, to be fair, rotary phones haven't been in general use in what, 3 decades at least? I'm around 30 and I can honestly say I've never seen one outside of TV and in some museums.

And those kids even figured it out after a bit of trial and error. They're faced with a form of technology that they've never used before and they have no real comparable thing they've ever used, and it took them 4 minutes to figure out how to work it. I'm honestly impressed by that.

5

u/TreTrepidation Dec 09 '21

Meh. They worked it out, eventually.

1

u/Schwisss Dec 09 '21

My mom still has a landline, plenty of offices use landlines, they aren't obselete, I'm sure plenty of schools have them too, I think he was just trying to make a cute joke.

I kept hearing "Whoa" because he laughed before finishing his word.

u/feyyd Dec 09 '21

Hrm, didn't know under 20's people's phones didn't ring, and they don't put their phone up to their ear and they don't answer hello?

I also didn't realize they don't have the exact same ringers on every phone that is the same as the old style phone.

u/AmyHeartsYou Dec 08 '21 edited Dec 09 '21

When did phones ever have buttons? It used to be dials and now it's touch screens. I think you might be thinking of something else.

Edit: Ok, I obviously know phones had buttons. Guess I should have included another "/s" here. Anyway if you downvoted, consider yourself r/wooshed.

2

u/LtCmdrData Dec 08 '21

Phones had buttons (touch-tone) decades years even before mobile phones.

AT&T's started selling touch-tone phones in 1960s. In 1990 there were more touch-tone phones than rotary dial phones in the market. Then came mobile phones with buttons.

Around around 2007 came first smartphones without buttons.

13

u/work_while_bent Dec 08 '21 Wholesome

he rolled up the paper and bent it into a rough phone-shape.
then had the other guy say "wing wing wing" (like a phone ringing) so he answered the paper "phone" and said "Hewo?" (Hello but with a w-sound)

u/feyyd Dec 09 '21

Phone still rings, ring still used as word for the noise your phone makes, you still answer phones by putting it to your ear and saying hello.

The only detail would be an old style receive/handset, but guess what, cordless phones are still a thing, payphones are still a thing, peoples older relatives have landlines, companies have landlines, businesses have landlines.

3

u/Noltonn Dec 09 '21

Yeah, all these people complaining kids won't get it are just jerking themselves off over anti-gen-z memes. Like, 90% of this joke translates to modern usage of phones, the only real thing you need to know is roughly what a landline looks like, and they're not as common sure but they're still around. It's not like the dude was miming using a rotary phone, and even then I reckon most people would get it from context.

This shows how sensitive people are now. I expressed MY FUCKING OPINION.

What I did not do;

  • Put anyone down
  • Call anyone out
  • Defame anyone who disagreed
  • Threaten anyone

So get over yourself, you guys need to downvote my opinion because you don't agree, that's fine. But you didn't need to comment to imply I'm making the world a depressing place.

u/CptBloodyObvious Dec 09 '21

Maybe consider taking yourself away from online discussions for a few days mate.

People are assholes when they have an opinion and will die repeatedly on any hill online because they can just put another penny in the slot and play another game. Truth of the matter is, outside of this small digital box their opinions mean nothing, so this is where they turn to get a reaction and ego points.

My mantra… no shit taken, no fucks given! On here and in real life.

So in brief, fuck these nobody’s and go and give your lovely wife a massive snog, just because!
