Default Last time you used a pay phone?

I'd say the last time I used a pay phone was 5 years ago. No kidding. I have never use them since cell phones became main stream.

Since I was 7, and used to prank-call the operator.

There is a pay phone outside the liquor store across the street from my shop. So many drug dealers/buyers used the phone, they put another one in so the druggies wouldn't have to wait(tweakers don't have much patience).
Since cell phones became popular, the phones only get used a few times a day.

It's been 4 years as well. I finally got a phone junior year of high school, virgin mobile pay as you go..

Used the payphone everyday to have my mom pick me up from the train station after school.

- The hardest thing about getting a Mac is telling your parents that you're gay.

- If I had the choice between being gay and owning a Mac, I would rather be gay, because if I owned a Mac I would be both gay and own a horrible computer.

- Imagine a giant cock flying towards your mouth, and there's nothing you can do about it. And you're like "Oh man, I'm gonna have to suck this thing", and you brace yourself to suck this giant cock. But then, at the last moment, it changes trajectory and hits you in the eye. You think to yourself "Well, at least I got that out of the way", but then the giant cock rears back and stabs your eye again, and again, and again. Eventually, this giant cock is penetrating your gray matter, and you begin to lose control of your motor skills. That's when the giant cock slaps you across the cheek, causing you to fall out of your chair. Unable to move and at your most vulnerable, the giant cock finally lodges itself in your anus, where it rests comfortably for 4, maybe 5 hours. That's what using Mac OSX is like.

This last weekend I was trying to find a phone book while out driving. People either take the page I'm looking for, take the whole damn book, or theres no phone at all.

Phone booths are a dying breed.

Hmm, I think about 6 years ago when my car's battery died, due to having the headlights turned on all day, which prompted me to call towing service on a pay phone. Shortly picked up a cell thereafter.
