Dad Challenges Clueless Teens to Dial Rotary Phone, It Goes Just How You’d Think

It’s “common knowledge” that technology is confusing to the older generation, but it turns out the youth not always the experts either.

The rotary phone was invented by Swede Ericsson in 1891, and the first commercial model was released in the US in 1919. It quickly became the standard for phone service in households around the world, as it was the only way to make a phone call until the 1970s. It remained popular until the 1980s, when the pushbutton telephone was released, allowing for easier and quicker dialing. The rotary phone was phased out of production in the early 2000s, and is now seen as a relic of the past

In this video, a man challenges two 17-year-olds to dial one phone number on a rotary phone. These teens are hilarious. They look extremely funny doing so. The teens keep looking for ways to do things correctly. All the while, we can clearly say that they are very nervous.

The teens finally manage to get a single number right. Regardless of having dialed wrong numbers, the teens seem quite proud. I guess this makes me feel quite a bit smarter than I did before! Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
