Do you ever have one of those days when you realize that something you used to use all the time, you completely forgot about?
I can think of a couple of things that were a major part of my life that are simply forgotten. The paper dictionary AND The Operator! Google is killing everything! lol.
When was the last time I dialed ‘0’? I can’t even recall! It has probably been 10 years since I’ve even thought to dial ‘0’. So, today I did it!
I dialed The Operator. I was a bit nervous, like I was doing something bad. The phone rang on the other end. I was fully expecting a computer voice to answer and guide me through the dozens of options available, but to my surprise a real person answered!
I asked her what services The Operator provided? She said, “assistance with dialing”, like I was a dolt.
Now I know why I haven’t needed to dial The Operator. My years of dialing experience…I don’t need help anymore. The same can’t be said for my spelling…
