My Dad won't turn his cell phone on when he's traveling in a vehicle because he thinks he's going to get "roaming charges." He makes the signal for "quotations" with his fingers when he says it too.

My grandpa had a habit of losing his cordless home phone so, to solve his problem, he found a piece of yarn and tied one end around the phone and the other one around the receiver. He's still really excited about this "invention."
