Not everyone has a mobile phone number

I've been clicking  Not Now when asked to register my mobile phone number because I don't have a mobile phone and don't want or need one.  Today though when I tried to log in there was no option to opt out, no Not Now click, in order to log into my account I had to register my mobile phone number. Since I don't have one I just put in my landline, but that didn't work because THEN they text you a verification code that you'll then need to proceed.  Can't text a landline. What a pain in the **bleep** Paypal.  So I put in my daughter's mobile phone number and then she had to tell me my verification code so I could freaking log in to my Paypal account.  I've had an account for years and years.   Why does everyone assume that everyone has a cell phone?  Why is Paypal forcing me to give them something I don't have?   I just wanted to vent, I'm sure no one can actually answer my questions.
