@khurtwilliams Wow. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen a payphone. When I was a kid my dad taught me to always check the coin return for abandoned change. My dad was a lad during the Great Depression so even an extra nickle was something back then.
Later my mother saw me casually check the coin return as I passed a payphone in the foyer of a resturaunt on our way out. She was mortified. I guess she didn’t think it was respectable. Dad just chuckled when he heard mom scold me.
I actually made a good haul for a few years there doing that. 🙂
