    In the town where I grew up, we could dial with 5 digit numbers. For example, to dial 594-7889, we would just have to dial 4-7889. This worked for outlying towns, too. We also had a party line. This was in the 80s-90s. Anyhoo, we were all saddened the day we had to dial the whole number. Ooh, and I just remember the operator would ask for our number before connecting us on long distance calls. Was this normal?

    I know, it totally freaked me out when the pre-recorded message chastised me for only using 7 digits.

    We’ve had 10 digit dialing here for years now. At first it was a pain, but now we’re all used to it. It’s not so bad Sarah. Really.
