  • You know you're old when . . .

    . . . you're interviewing a 23 year old for a job in prepress and they ask you if you ever heard of a program called Quark.

    Or, when you ask that same 23 year old to dial a phone number. "Dial?", "What's Dial?"

            Had to explain to my grand-daughter once , that, back in the Day, phones had a circular face with finger-holes where the numbers go. To call a phone number, you had to place your finger in the desired finger hole and move the circular face until it hit a small metal stopper. Then release it and do the same for the rest of the phone number. Thus, when you called someone you had to "Dial" their phone number. She just rolled her eyes and said "Sure, Papa" (as she is texting on her iPhone).
