A neighboring family told us about when their 9-yr-old daughter got very
confused by a dial telephone.  After lifting the receiver, she just poked at
the numbers -- and didn't understand why nothing was happening.

[Which is not really so unreasonable, either, since there are
"old-fashioned" phones sold that look sort of like dial phones but have
round buttons in the finger holes.  Whereas you have to search to find a
real dial phone these days.]
