PM me your old phone wants. I have a lot of good stuff that you can get at a very reasonable price/trade . I am overloaded with excess phone stuff, And I have a soft spot for smart-alec kids (been there).

Really, let me know, I have a lot of phone "crap" that I would like to sell cheap, I need more room for my keepers. This offer is open to all you young kids and old farts.  I am way open for trading.

I'm not that young anymore, I kinda moved on with my life at an early age.  ;)  Had too for personal reasons.

Far from smart alec too, I strive on my politeness, and how good I was raised.

I also honestly don't know your ages, I could care less.

The way I see it, we all have one thing in common, old telephones, and thats why I joined.

No need to apology, I figured you guys were just yanking my chain anyway.

I am old, and have a right to be confused and make mistakes. Why are you picking on me, whippersnapper?

Just kidding,
I I screwed up on this newfangled forum stuff.

First time I've ever been called a whippersnapper..

Just FYI though, I'm bad at sarcasm, I have a mild form of Autism, Aspergers Syndrome, and being bad at sarcasm is one of the symptoms (along with fascination with electronics, haha)..  Though with Autism, I succeeded well through school, honor rolls, directors lists, and even got certified in the IT field.

I'm not like other whippersnappers.  ;)  I actually have something going for myself.

We aren't very good at Sarcasm either...no one on this forum is.

We are just being our usual goofy selves tonight.

I snagged a small hoard of phones today from a retired co-worker and have been going through them all between checking for the latest posts here.

Besides the two phones I mentioned, I only have one other old phone, but it's really just an early 90's late 80's touch tone multi line speaker phone.  It's an AT&T phone.

I don't use it anymore because it takes 3 AA's..

I knew that comment wouldn't go by without more questions.

I'll take and post some pics soon but meanwhile, here's the roster:
 
4 AE 40's, one with full chrome
3 AE 50's, one with full chrome
2 extra full chrome AE type 41 handsets
1 AE 1A set
1 Leich 901 Magneto convertible
1 AE 880 Speakerphone in Black, like new
1 AE 182 Starlite in FMN Blue, badly discolored (Sandpaper time)
1 AE 192 Starlite wall phone in white, badly discolored (spare parts most likely)
1 AE 192 Starlite wall phone in black, nice shape
A bunch of new in package spade type set cords in various colors and a spare chrome Finger Wheel AE dial

And, oh yes - a like new chrome AE 3 slot payphone

Total purchase price = "get it out of here". He frequents Starbucks (Big Bucks) so I think I'll get him a Starbucks card to keep him going for quite awhile.
