the end of an era


The end of an era. Severing a 45-year-old relationship. Irrationally sad to be giving up the phone number I've had for all those years. 😔😔😔

At least 95% of the calls on the landline were spam, which made it easier to let go. 

I just realized this morning that all of the physical phones (and their answering machine)(and their wires, wires, wires) can go, too. That mostly seems just weird.

But letting go of the phone number I've had since I was about 20..... Harder. 😔

I'm thinking about giving up my landline (from a zillion years also). Maybe they can just transfer it to the phone I get. I hope.

I wondered, idly, if there was a way to get the calls from the landline forwarded to my cell number. Then I thought about it some more. At the end, essentially all of our calls were spam, or worse, scams. I don't want those calls............

I don't miss the landline.

It was a weird moment when I took the phone off my desk! I haven't thrown it away yet, but next April when the electronics recycling event takes place at the high school, it will be going.

It really feels like the end of an era............
