Beep Beep Beep Beep!!!
“Wait bro, my mom paged me and reminded me to call her later when I get home! This is just one of the cool lines one could ever utter during the elementary days. Having a pager/beeper was a feat at some point during our elementary days. Whether it was Easycall or PocketBell, it really didn’t matter as long as you had this really hip thing hanging on your belt, (but I think EasyCall was the better one).
I can still remember mine; it was a small pager with a transparent casing with a gold chain serving as its strap on device. Mine was also the envy of my classmates since it had more beeping tones and a mini game! Theirs didn’t!
Can anyone still remember how to page? Here’s how: Dial 141 or 114 (depending on your service provider) then the pager number then a call center agent would answer, you can now dictate your message! Remember short messages only! Having a pager also means that you also must have your handy fonkard or your pentagon shaped two peso coin so you can easily reply by calling the one who paged you! Ain’t it easy? By remembering the past, we learn to appreciate the things we have now that we normally take for granted such as the small rectangular thing we bring daily, our cell phones.
