Does this guy have a brain? All I do is unplug my phone at night and plug it in the next morning when I’m ready to be pestered by phone calls. I agree it’s a hassle that a lot of modern landlines no longer have those little dials on the side where you can turn the ringer off, but it’s not that much tougher to just unplug the jack from the wall. Sheesh.
what if there is an emergency? not everyone lives the hermit life. Grandparents fall, work duties call, brothers or sisters may have a call for help. God forbid a hospital is calling for some extended family member.
