Drunk Kid 2 - "I called her 15 minutes ago, she'll be here any second"
Before the advent of Blackberries and cellphones we had beepers also known as pagers. These primitive devices allowed one to receive a call and be notified that someone was trying to reach them. The beeper would display the phone number that the person trying to reach you wanted to be called back at.
Beepers were an amazing excuse for lazy people. It was like a cell phone with a built-in excuse. Nowadays you miss a call, you know you gotta call the other person back cause the phone is obviously with you. WIth a beeper it was like, "Oh shit man, couldn't get in touch with you. Got the page but there wasn't a phone around and I didn't have change for the pay-phone. (Read, I don't want to talk to your freak ass)."
Deshawn: Truf, man. She is some major beeper status when it comes to technology.
I dunno! She's definitly a beeper.
Fighters may crash several miles from the point of crew ejection, so the parachute or seat frame containing the "Beeper" device is ideal for locating the crew, rather than the airframe. Large tanker and cargo aircraft may contain jettisonable ELTs which are released by the crew prior to a crash, and are called "Crash Position Indicators" (CPI).
