    Years ago, ranchers in Douglas County near Castle Rock CO had a private party line that was a big circle- it used the top wire of the barbed wire fences, allowing you to ring your neighbors- or to one office in Castle Rock that could plug you into the regular phone net. The more people listening in, the lower the volume of the call. They used to joke about one little old lady that talked so fast, she knocked all the barbs off the barbed wire.

    Only one?
    And as a child, I’d listen in for as long as I could go unnoticed.

    We had a party line and a nasty woman that was on it a lot. My mother was sick and I needed to call the doctor. She would not get off the line. I had to go next door and use their phone. My dad reported it to the phone company and she was told if it happened again she would lose her phone. After that if we picked up the phone we heard "I have to get off now." Shortly after we got a private line.

    When people ask a question like this, it’s a perfect opportunity to educate. I would never brush off someone who asked me an informative question.
    That was pretty rude.

    Difference in a nutshell:

    Democrat: Hell yes! We’re gonna take your AR, your AK...

    Republican: Nah keep em.
