Time changes all things, including us and our environments. Redditor Ms_Mosa posted a prompt in askreddit, asking users what sounds do they miss hearing from their childhood. Take a trip down memory lane with their answers.
The white noise sound of the tv when a channel had no reception.
Camera flash charging sound.
The tornado sirens at noon on the first Saturday of the month.
Dot matrix printer printing.
The sound of mechanical cash registers.
The instant message sound on AIM.
"Hi, Billy Mays here."
The actual coins coming out of the slot machines.
VHS tapes rewinding.
“After these messages, we’ll be riiiigght back!”
The invalid phone number tone. "We're sorry, your call cannot be completed as dialed."
A manual typewriter being typed on.
Those old manual credit card imprint machines.
Connecting to the internet via Dial-up.
"EA Games, challenge everything! Bzzwoop."
Those old rotary phones. The sound it made when you dialed, also when it rang.
The high-pitched whine of a CRT television/monitor
“Call me now for your free reading” - Miss Cleo.
"You've Got Mail!"
The crackle of an LP (record) when you first put the needle down on it as you wait for the music to start.
Getting seated at a restaurant, "Smoking or Non Smoking?"
That sound your speakers made right before you were about to get a call on your cell phone.
