The other thing to be concerned about back then was your parents listening in on the kitchen wall phone while you took your call on the upstairs phone.....

True story:  A kid is out partying with his friends, but he's supposed to be home.  His home has a phone in the living room, one downstairs and an extension in the parent's bedroom upstairs.  He's late, so he knows his parents are already in bed.  So, he calls home, and when his mom picks it up from the bedroom, he says "I got it Mom!"

Well, what if she was grabbing a late night snack in the kitchen (or waiting from him to come home on the living room couch) and picked up the living room phone? If that was the case, the "I got it Mom" takes on a whole 'nother meaning, I'm sure he got it.

I forgot to add that his room is downstairs and a phone down there.  The rest of the story goes that it only worked once.  Apparently the parents found out and then he had to tell them in person when he got home.

Thanks for posting!  When I read the comics this morning, I had the same thought.

Here's where I first saw that term used. Someone's idea of what all the Bell companies should have been renamed after divestiture. I think I saved it from eBay once.
