Pulse Dial

Everybody is asking, what is going on at Hooptyrides, Inc.? Quite a bit, but floor mopping and paint scraping don't really seem like they are worth blogging. God knows, they have been blogged, but I don't know that they should be.

As opposed to these phones! Sure, they are pulse and the property of the Bell System, but has there ever been a better looking phone? As far as I am concerned, there has never been a more handsome, more comfortable or better sounding phone than the classic Henry Dreyfuss 500. And that red, dial-less phone looks like it is fresh from the lobby of The Plaza.

But it is even better! The CONFIDENCER! Hold close to mouth, indeed. May as well say, WHISPER. This is not just an aftermarket replacement cap; the CONFIDENCER is a complete new mic.

What am I going to do with these phones? Use 'em at Hooptyrides! I will still have a modern cordless, as I am so fond of endless touchtone-triggered customer service menus, but I will turn off the ringer on all modern phones. Telephone calls will be an event! Somebody is calling Hooptyrides! Maybe it is long distance! Perhaps the caller is a deep pocketed sucker! Let the bells ring!
