  1. Oh my- she means business too!

  2. My father worked for Western Electric for 20 years after retiring from the Air Force -- he was very proud to work for Ma Bell. :)

  3. Funny how years ago we affectionately called the phone company "Ma Bell". I cannot imagine calling any of my utility companies by such a family like name, in fact most of the time I can't call them by any name, because my mom taught me if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all! Trust me I usually don't have anything nice to say. I miss the era of Ma Bell!!

  4. We've come a long way from the days of dialing 0 (actually dialing) and being able to talk with a friendly operator, haven't we? All in the name of progress. Ma Bell is missed.
