March 10th International Find A Pay Phone Booth Day

Get out your binoculars, put on your pith helmet and get out in the wilderness… today is International Find A Pay Phone Booth Day. The phone booth has been put on the endangered species list as they are becoming harder and harder to find. Once called a telephone cabinet, they were featured all over the place… every street corner, on the sides of buildings, sometimes even out in the middle of nowhere – but now, it’s hard to find one. The day was created by Bob Matthews from Rochester, NY in 2018, probably seeing a phone booth in bad shape, lonely and feeling useless along the side of the road.

How to celebrate – Try to find a phone booth. Take pictures of it if you find one. See how many people you can stuff in the phone booth you find.

January 30th National Inane Answering Message Day

Have you ever called someone and gotten an answering machine message that makes no sense at all? At first you are confused, then maybe you laugh and pretty soon, you are wanting to share your experience with others. Now I know most of us do not have answering machines anymore. I am not even sure you can still buy them but you can leave an inane message on your cell phone. The odder, the better. The one key is, it cannot make any sense. This day is owned by Wellcat.com. Why anybody needs to own this day is a little beyond me but so be it.

How to celebrate – Make an inane message on your phone. Use a language others do not know you speak. Make whale sounds instead of words.
