Everything old is new again goes the old yarn. I don’t have a clue what that means, or what yarn has to do with it. What I do know is that with our crazy, high-speed, high-tech world, people are often looking for ways to slow things down and bring back some of the old ways.
In the same way that the iPod has counterintuitively driven people running for record players, we expect that Skype, Facetime, and Google Hangouts will eventually drive people back to older, more personal forms of communication.
It’s for this reason that the staff here at BSO wants to present this guide to using semaphore flags to communicate in the 21st century. Whether you’re running a storage facility, looking to rent storage, or hoping to make a splash at the next punk rock show / regatta you attend, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for below:
“Do you have 5 X 10 available?”
“Excuse me, are any of these units climate controlled?”
“It does not seem like a good idea to place that antique couch on top of your porcelain Russian nesting doll collection, but I regret that I am in no position to help you.”
“In retrospect, storing my anvils in a ground-level unit would have been smart. This walk up unit sucks.”
“Is this the storage facility where they found all of those bodies last year?”
“I am having a serious issue trying to control my arms right now.”
