    They had them in the office at my elementary school. I remember hearing them printing while waiting to see the principal when I was in trouble. I would be scared that I was going to get the paddled and that sound just resonated with me. Another sound nostalgic for some that was negative for me were rotary phones. I remember the principal dialing our home phone number to get permission to paddle me. Of course the answer was always yes.
