  • Good Bye Time Lady

    For many of us, the time lady was something we grew up with. When your power went out or the time changed, you called the time lady (POPCORN for those of us in Northern California) and got time every ten seconds.

    Well that service is coming to an abrupt end in September.

    Citing changing times, a need for prefixes and old equipment, AT&T has been gradually phasing the service out, and the last two states (Nevada and California) are now set to be cut off.

    I for one will miss calling to check.

      Re: Good Bye Time Lady

      We noticed after a recent power outage that when we called her she stopped after only saying the time twice. She used to go on for quite some time.

      How can I set my watch with just two "beeps" available to me??? hehe

      I'll miss POP-CORN.

      Thanks for the memories!

        Hey, I think she has already been put to rest!

        I just tried calling her and there was no answer!

        I hope she enjoys her "retirement"...

        Farewell, sweet lady!

          Too sad.

          When she would say 'hello' my Grandma Teresa would say "Hello - may I please have the time?"

          Lady would say the time and my Grandma would say "Thank you very much."

          We used to laugh.....because Grandma never realized that 'she' was a recording.

          :lol:

            She's still alive and living in my neck of the woods.

              I haven't used that service in years! What with computers and cell phones and satellite boxes, it isn't really needed any more.

                Too funny, I was just going to call this morning because I didn't want my daughter to be late for the first day of school. I call all the time. Literally.... so sad.

                  I wish that were the case.
                  My cell phone, computer, and phone at work all have different times........
                  I have no idea which one is right!

                    Ah, but how can we be sure that the Time Lady is right?

                        Do you dare question the time ladys accuracy?
