Uhhh... I still use a rotary dial telephone, with extremely loud clanger.
Not in my room, but the household's main phone is one 'o those. It's the
only 'public' one in the house, all the other ones sit in someone's

I still like that phone, but the ring really gives me a jolt sometimes.

And yes, I am under 30, but my parents most definitely aren't. :)
