Monday Memories: Bedtime and pager greeting

Do you remember back in the day when you had a pager? Did you ever ask someone to do your pager greeting? When Mike and I first started dating, I would always ask him to do my pager greeting, more specifically, I would ask him to sing Bedtime by Usher.

i had a pager - it was a clear blue one and my paging company was called pageNET and it cost me $17/month. damn, why can't my phone be that cheap?

i don't think i asked anyone to do a pager greeting for me.

How funny! I was just having a conversation about pagers on Friday night! And I never even had one!

oh hell to the yes! my first pager (i know, there's second one) was a bday gift given to my by my ex, it was clear/smoke/gray color, then my second one was a clear burgundy color. the fad back then, at least in L.A. was playing a song as your greeting and my friends and i were notorious for playing 1 minute long songs so by the time you got to the voice mail, you would've given up! LOL

I was always so tech challenged and behind the times (remember it took me forever to join the world of smart phones? And when I did I got a blackberry which lots of people still considered the dark ages since it wasn't an iPhone lol) so I never had a pager. But I think it's adorable for one that you've been with Mike for that long and that you made him sing Usher :) What a great man you have :) I LOVE Usher!

I do remember. But what this reminds me of is that time you and Gino were somewhere and you were trying to send me a message or something so I can pick you up. If I remember it correctly, you used a different system and it actually worked and I was able to find you and Gino. Do you remember this?
