Alexander Graham Bell invented the world’s first telephone in 1876 with the help of his assistant Thomas A. Watson. Upon completing his prototypes for the telephone, Graham sought to test its capabilities. With two phones he conducted the first ever phone call in history to his assistant in a nearby room. The first words Bell spoke over telephone were: “Mr. Watson, come here, I need to see you.” This button has similar phrasing but with a humorous intent of a frustrated Bell repeatedly requesting help but seemingly being ignored.
