Default Phrases we never hear anymore because changing technology has made them obsolete

Film at 11.

Can you think of others?

Not really a phrase but a standard sentence uttered in most libraries, for many years.

I'm going to check the card catalog.

VHS or Betamax. I think we still have our Betamax in the basement somewhere.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

I still have a VHS and video tapes. Oh yes, I do.

Radio stations no longer "spin the tracks".

I think "I'll page him" is out of use except in some hospitals.

Shoot! I was coming back in to mention this.

I was thinking about how I slightly missed not having a cell phone the other day. If you were out somewhere a person had to come get you, or call the business/establishment you were at and have you paged (or screamed for). You knew it was something important. No 25 texts about nothing while you are trying to eat.

Oh, I didn't mean VHS was obsolete, because I definitely have one and have video tapes, but the VHS vs Betamax convo at the video store.

Come to think of it, "Video Store" is probably pretty much obsolete now.

We have oneat my workplace. And it takes actual coins, not a card. I want to make a call from it one day just to say I did.

My phone is ringing off the hook.

You sound like a broken record.

The cashier is ringing up my groceries.

We passed one once when my baby sister and I were walking in Chicago and she was like "Omg! A pay phone! Can I use it??"

She also doesn't know how to work a VCR.

Obsolete things to say: "blah blah blah floppy disc"

And while I'm thinking of it, does anybody really "dial" a phone anymore?

Or "hang up", really.

It is basically obsolete. I have kept mine foe those under the radar cult classics that have not been released in other formats, and home videos.

Speaking of home entertainment... I have it on LaserDisc!

Unless you happen to have a rotary phone, no one is dialing.

You better believe it, baby! Rotary all the way!

Wait, is that really "dialing"? Is dialing more like...a telephone switch operator dialing the number for you?
