Young Girl Has No Idea How to Hang up a Phone

(Video Link)

Layla appears to be about 10 years old. Her father hands her a phone--and landline phone with a cord--and asks her to hang it up.

She asks, "How do you do that?"

That's a good question if cell phones have been dominant since the day you were born. This phone has no touchscreen or a red hang-up button. It's a relic of our distant past, when we had to make do with stone knives and bear skins.

Be thankful, Layla, that you were born when you were.

Funny one, but oh so true about changing technology. Wonder what today's kids think when they see people on a TV show with a big circular plastic disk with tiny grooves cut into them that can play music. Remember when my older son video taped his first daughter's birth. I asked him if he thought she'd be embarrassed when she saw it. He said, by the time she'd be embarrassed, there would be no way for her to view it. He was close. That was almost 20 years ago.
