OH Lawd, my parents hated our party line. HATED it. My mom was pregnant at the time with my youngest brother Chuck, and I still have clear memories of her going into labor and wanting to call ahead to her doctor - and some neighbor was on the line shooting the breeze with her hubby (at least we presume it was her hubby). Mom was so mad about the timing that she cut loose on the poor woman.
