    Or drive with it on the dash, or blindly carry it through a busy intersection.

    My friend made a fortune a quarter at a time with those and quarter car washes. He said when times were bad, payphones were good. When times good, payphones were good. Sold out at the right time.

    The call, at least when I was growing up was a dime. Video chat, texting, blah this and blah that......Amazing the world survived without BS like that!

    I'll tell you what's even more annoying is going to the gas station and they have some god awful music playing really loud and then you do the credit card thing and the little screen starts playing the weather or what specials they have on top of the music and i can't hear when my tank is getting full :mad:
