and very rarely ever needs repairs, once you fix them." - Dan/Panther

Rewatched a few favourite clips, sharing them here:

Careers in the Telephone Business (1974) Bell

Vintage Telephones (1976) BBC Television Programme

The Life of a Telephone Operator (1969) AT&T

The last shows genuine Operator calls as received and how they were handled, including irate subscribers, misdialled calls, and some of the more unusual and often confusing calls Operators took... 'I'll have a chicken salad sandwich please...' 'Mr Lions at the Zoo...' '88.. two88.. three88...'
