11 Sounds That Your Kids Have Probably Never Heard
Do your kids even remember a time when a phone required a cord? Probably not. Here are eleven sounds that will bring you back to your childhood, while sounding completely archaic to your children.
Rotarty Dial Telephone
I used to practice dialing 911 on our rotary telephone. Little did I know that I was repeatedly dialing 911 from my home. Whoops.
Because of my horrible grammar, I spent more time whiting-out documents than typing them. While I love the way this sounds, I prefer my digital word processor.
We just got a Keurig and I never want to go back! Then again, this is a godsend when camping.
Being social in the 60’s probably meant this camera was noisily flashing around you. This was cutting edge technology, you could take four pictures in a row without changing the flash bulb. FOUR!
TV Channel Selector
Today there are over a thousand channels and nothing on, back in the day the channels went from 2 to 13. Did you still complain there was nothing on?
Before the seven-CD changer, came the record changer. Some jukeboxes are still using this analog setup.
Gas Station Driveway Bell
I miss this. Honestly, I’m waiting for the day that I fill my car up with diesel instead of gasoline.
TV Station Sign-Off
Were their less insomniacs back then with no infomercials to watch? Hmmmm.
I did see a real life cash register here awhile back when I visited Tombstone, Arizona. I swear that sarsaparilla tasted way better because of it.
I remember having one of these in my classroom. I must have had issues concentrating, because I never paid attention to the film, just the constant tick of the projector.
Now the only time you hear this is when a DJ is trying to be cool or hip or whatever they call it.
