This style phone was in every single house when I was growing up and talk about annoying! These phones clunky and you had to stick your finger in each slot to dial each number. It felt like it took forever to dial a number, you had to insert your finger into the slot and rotate it one direction to make it dial that number. I hated these phone with a passion and even when the new style phones surface all my friends were the last to get the new push button styles. Thank you, technology!
