A Funny Thing Happened...

...when I tried to make a phone call today. I received a busy signal. Why is that funny? I couldn't figure out what it was at first. Luckily, my phone was there to tell me it was busy. It occurs to me that I haven't received a busy signal in literally years. Usually it goes to voicemail now.

Anyone else notice that the busy signal has more or less gone the way of the dodo?

I get the busy signal all the time, but that's because my family is still in the stone age.

And don't even get me started on people who can't be bothered to get cell phones.

Gee...who could you possibly be referring to?

I certainly don't get busy signals like I used to. I seem to get them more on the cell phone. I believe that those are mainly 'busy tower' not 'busy line' signals, as when it happens on the cell, it goes off almost as soon as you hit the send button (this is, of course, only a guess)
