Press Zero For The Operator 

I used to hear stories about this contraption 

How people used it to communicate 

I heard it was a lot faster than carrier pigeon (just slightly more expensive)

Now I find myself in a conundrum 

Running late for a date (the all important first date)

My cell phone is dead 🙄

There is no instruction manual for this ancient artifact 

Usually a red phone is for emergency 

I wonder why the people at the museum are staring at me staring at this thing

Does anyone have any change?

Or better yet, does anyone have a carrier pigeon on them?

It’s the all important first date!!!

  1. Haha! I am still surprised how many of those phone boxes are still around! But you know what? The tricky thing is not how to handle it but to know the phone number you need to reach…. been there… lol 😂

      1. That’s right! Many are broken anyway. But overhere you still have some at trainstations or post offices… but mostly you need a credit card. I had both when I forgot my phone at home and needed to reach my daughter but I had no idea about her cell phone number… lol!

      2. Sometimes such a phone option would be amazing when you have no net. Then you can still check the number and call from the boot! But for sure, right then, no phone box at hands!!

  2. We are so reliant on our devices Syl. I do remember when there was a phone on the wall in our kitchen, a typewriter, even a wood burning stove in my grandparents farmhouse. The tech revolution has left us attached at the hip to to our cell phone! lol! Have a great evening.
