Way back when I worked for "THE PHONE COMPANY". The Bell System. I was there when it was broken up so that I no longer worked for Western Electric, but now AT&T Network Systems. That became Lucent Technologies, but I was long gone before that happened.
Yeah this pretty much sums up the attitude around there then.
I thought it was pretty amusing when my friend commented on a recent Blog post that he crossed up some 1400 phone lines.
Dude. Take out one of these. While you are wearing the happy name badge that says "Network Systems".
Yeah, there went Peoria!
I still have some documentation around here.
I don't know WHY I keep it around though!
