Did you know that an answering machine is a rare bird to find these days? I didn't, until recently. Ours was around 12-15 years old, and had decided to be selective about the volume for listening to messages. Very inconvenient, no?
So, on one trip last week to our local London Drugs, I went to the electronics section, specifically the telephone section. There were plenty of phones, cordless or corded, and combo message machine and telephone. But a stand-alone answering machine? - apparently not.
We've had to join the rest of the modern populace and get voice messaging on our phone.
And our old machine?
