Superman Needs to find a new Home

So I was thinking today.. who the heck even uses phone booths these days.. it’s almost iPhone Boothlike something that belongs in a museum.   And it’s SO weird…. I mean I remember when cell phones were the size of bricks and hell expensive.  No one had one.. so you used those public phones or phone booths.

Seriously though, outside of airports (and even then not often) when the heck do you see anyone using a pay phone?  Even more elusive than the pay phone… the pay phone that chills in it’s own booth.

This all came up for me because I park really close to this phone booth everyday in the mornings, and while I’ve obviously noticed it before it’s never really grabbed my attention.  Today when I pulled up to work (while trying to pry my frozen fingers off the handlebars) I was totally shocked to see some dude in the booth… using the phone.  Then I did a mental double take, why the hell is that so damn weird?  Dude is just using the phone.  LOL

That’s all 😀

Just goes to show how dependant we are on our electronic gadgets – I swear if I find that I’ve left my cell phone at home, I break into a cold sweat of absolute panic – what if there’s an emergency? A few years ago this would not have been an issue! lol I remember when cell phones first came to Smithers and all the suits were walking around with them, talking at the top of their lungs so everyone would notice “Hey look at me I have a cell phone and another reason why I’m so much better than you!” Dumbasses!

AT&T has started to cease operations on payphones here in the US. I know when I saw the one remnants of one at the local tech college that I attend. It really made think how much has changed for sure these days.

If one watches CSI for any length of time, it seems that serial killers, stalkers, and wild eyed crazy people still use public phones. Of course, most of them have evidently switched to disposable cellphones.
