no more! This afternoon while at work, we were talking about how every one’s clock in his/her office differs from one another so I called “POP-CORN” to check the time. A recording came on and said “effective September 19, 2007 the time announcement service has been discontinued.” What? How are we suppose to check the time now after power failures, not that we have them that often but even when we call to check the time due to “day-light” savings? I googled why they were discontinuing the service . . . since AT&T has discontinued the service, they said 300,000 new phone numbers will be freed up for use. Besides my own phone number at home when I was little, I think “Pop-Corn” was the next number I had “memorized”. One didn’t have to key or press the full name “Pop-Corn” . . . I used to just dial POP-1212. My co-worker and I realized several years ago that you can actually just dial P-O-P followed by any 4 numbers of your choice and you’ll still get the time announcement. Well, I guess we’ll just have to use our “cell-phones” now to check the time. . . .”and please take a note of it.” . . . OK . . . now that I’ve blogged this silly entry, gotta warm up our dinner. (Thank goodness for “left-overs!”) 🙂 JP is upstairs doing his homework and AC and the hubs should be coming home soon from “a way” game this afternoon . . .
