    I can’t even remember how much it was the last time I used one. 25 cents? Seems like they went up more than that.

    If he doesn’t have his lawyer present, the one on the left shouldn’t say much anyway…
    I think the big guy is wearing a wire.

    I know he’s not cosmopolitan and sophisticated like that flat guy with all his international connections…

    But you’d be surprised what he gets out of some good old-fashioned networking down at the Rotary Club.

    Ones in south Florida used dimes until the early 80s, IIRC, then went to a quarter. I think we were one of the last areas to lose the old rate.

    Apparently our cartoonist has not seen a coin box unit in years, either. There were only 10 holes on a rotary dial, not 12. There is no # or * on a rotary phone, and they didn’t exist on phones until TouchTone was introduced years later (coin boxes were around 25 cents at that point in major cities).

    We have a pay phone at our historical museum. Not many under the age of 15 know exactly what it is.
