Phone Numbers

When someone with my number of wrinkles asks you for your phone number, that someone does not want you to call their phone so that they have it in their cell phone. They do not want you to take their cell phone and add your number for them. What they want is for you to say aloud the nine digits needed to make your phone ring, if someone wants to call you.

Modern technology is fine and good, but “What’s your phone number” still means, “What nine digits can you recite aloud that I can use to call you, if I want to.” A lesson in cell phone and cell phone numbers is not being requested.
