Our old answering machine sometimes decides to just start announcing for no reason. It talks to itself all the time. It has gotten quite irritating, so I’ve asked hubby to buy us a new one. He had an unused gift certificate for Best Buy so he thought he’d start there. He couldn’t find one anywhere in the store. When he asked someone, he was told answering machines are obsolete. What? Many families don’t even have land lines anymore and use the voicemail on their cell phones. Wow. I haven’t even learned how to set up my voice mail yet. I’ve just recently started using my cell phone to actually talk to some people instead of just for texting out-of-town. Who knew? Obsolete? Amazing. I guess 61 is getting a little old. LOL…by the way…Walmart still carries them.
