Death of the Busy Signal

While dailing the phone my daughter told me, "Daddy, there's this wierd noise on the phone."
I listened to her phone call and the wierd noise was a busy signal. It dawned on me that my little girl had been using the phone for years and never heard a busy signal. With rollover voicemail on all our relatives phones, we never hear busy signals anymore. A more loquicious blogger would make an analogy to how modern humans are now constantly in touch and never have down time and how it's destroying a sense of selfness and privacy, but that's not me. If you'd like to discuss this, call me and leave a message.
