I had to websearch bag phones... never heard of those!
My parents got onboard in the late 90s with those chunky nokia phones and I got my first ~2007 upon high school graduation.
One of those 'free' flip phones that came with the family plan.
Back in about 88/89 or so (whenever bag phones were a thing) I'd just got mine and a good buddy in the company decided it'd be a good thing to carry it fishing one Monday (his office was about 2 hours away). So about 10 that morning Dennis and I were in his boat chunking for bass. The phone rings, I answer, it's my VP boss. I single Dennis to shush, he replies "what" Tate, my boss, "Rhodes, are you and McBride together? We are. Are you fishing? (and I was thinking these phones would revolutionize our world). Me, would you like some fillets.
It all turned out fine, Tate did take a mess of largemouth bass fillets and a promise we'd call next trip. We did get in a few extra fishing trips due to having a bag phone though.
