Some years ago, it was posted on this list, or maybe a list like this. Phone
guy had been called, for "phone not ringing" at a bar and grill.
The central office did a line test, and then the tech went out. He jacked
into the line at the phone pole, and did a ringer test, which worked. Then,
to the demarc box, and the ringer works fine. So, he goes into the
establishment, introduces himself. The bar keeper shows him the phone that's
not ringing. A trimline phone, laying on the counter behind the bar.
He lifts the phone, looks, and the slides the switch from "RINGER OFF" to
"RINGER ON". And closes out the trouble call.
This AM, I got a call that the phone ringer not working, in the clerk
office. I drove to the church, on the way back from a service call. I went
into the clerk office, slid the ringer selector from off to loud, and then
called the church number. Problem solved. History repeats.
