Rare sighting confirmed
« on: March 07, 2020, 01:24:37 PM »
A rare sighting of the elusive, and sometimes believed extinct, PAYPHONE has been confirmed.  This herd numbered a total of 6 individuals and have taken up shelter in a lower level of a casino in downtown Reno.  They appear to have settled in for the long term, so I will check on them once in awhile.

Do they take coins or just plastic?

Always get the water for the coffee upstream from the herd.

They do take coins, but I'll have to wait till I get back there and see if I can get close enough to see if there is a card slot.

I still remember the nice lobby booths of the 40's, 50's,  and 60's. For a while, I even worked for a company that repaired pay phones. That was a while ago.

If that company still exists, they are probably repairing ATMs.

They went under, shortly after I left. And I like to think that my leaving was what put them under... 😉

Without the area code, that number is useless. If the story is true, I grew up in that area code ;D
