Two tin cans and a piece of string

 

Remember the days when we used to tie two cans together and from about 10 meters away talk into a can and the other person would listen intently as he waited his turn to switch roles?

Well, I sometimes wished that communication was still as simple as two cans and a piece of string because our phone line has been down for almost three days (strangely enough, the broadband connection still works!)

As we have no mobile reception down here by the river either, I drove up to the highway and rang the phone company, "How long will it take to get my service back?"

"How long is a piece of string?" she replied.

Touché!
