The future of America: Gen Z can’t figure out how to use a rotary phone

Generation Z or Gen Z are the demographic cohort succeeding Millennials and preceding Generation Alpha. Researchers and popular media use the mid-to-late 1990s as starting birth years and the early 2010s as ending birth years for Gen Z.

Most members of Generation Z have used digital technology since a young age.

Wait, but all the dumbasses who steer education policy (Gen X and older millenials at this point) say that using current technology, by which they mean busywork on computers, is soooooo important and will make these kids great at thinking and solving problems and bla bla bla. Nope, these kids will make you depressed, they’re useless, they’re basically cavemen with cell phones. They’re ripe for socialism because so many of them will need peoole to take care of them.

Correct. The only thing that makes one good at thinking and solving problems is having to think and solve problems. They just have technology they use to avoid it.

This is so pitiful, it is down right unbelievable. What I don’t understand is that the kid on the right, would pickup the receiver and put it back down to cancel what he had done–why couldn’t he figure out that in order to complete dialing the number, you had to have the handset off the received? This is beyond sad, and is an extreme indictment of the fact that today’s youth have not been taught critical thinking. Yes indeed, these folks are ripe for Socialism, because they truly cannot take care of themselves.

They don’t even know corded desk phones (like at a job) so it’s all (rotary or not) alien to them.

There’s something about using these old phones that is satisfying. We could dial those phones as fast as any push button phone. Can the rotaries still be purchased? If so, I would buy one. Do any of the ladies here remember having a princess phone on their nightstand? So nostalgic!😍

I enjoyed finally watching “Godzilla” last week on TV… the re-make from ’98. Yeah, I’m late. He ended up laying eggs (yes, “he”) in MSG, in Manhattan, NYC. Anyway. There was a scene where a character called somebody from a payphone booth… And I thought to myself… Millennials are thinking, “How cool is that, a tiny little urban glass house with some sort of analog communications device!” FWIW, I can still tap out SOS in Morse code… but I never learned how to read a slide-rule. We were allowed to buy & use calculators in high school. But in grade… Read more »
