“Finger” Speeds Dialing

Easily attached to the top of a dial-telephone receiver, a metal finger now on the market fits snugly into the dial holes, helps prevent inaccurate dialing, eliminates the danger of broken finger nails, and speeds up the dialing process by about ten percent.

    Exactly how does this help anyone?

    An artificial finger would have been useful for someone without hands – but the user of this device still has to grasp the earpiece to use it.

    Perhaps it would be useful for a prizefighter who can’t fit a beefy finger into the dial?

    “Perhaps it would be useful for a prizefighter who can’t fit a beefy finger into the dial?”

    Or if he’s wearing his boxing gloves?
