… using *69?
In most areas of the United States, phone companies offer *69 service. If you miss a call, or receive one from an unknown caller, dialing *69 on your phone will identify the last caller’s number (if possible) and give you the option to call them back.He thought he could just hang up on me and I wouldn’t know who he was, but I star 69ed his ass.

I was just thinking to myself today. Imagine telling some young whippersnapper about growing up in a world with NO social media, NO Google, NO internet, and NO Cell Phone. That makes me sound old as fuck. Kind of crazy to think about. I’m glad I grew up without all the crap that kids have today, because I don’t know that I would have ever gotten heavily involved in sports. To this day, most of my best friends are people I grew up with playing Baseball, Basketball, and Lacrosse. Yes, I was once a “Lax Bro” many moons ago.
**RIP to the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button on Google. I used to wear that thing out.
