    Since when do we have the phone in the car, if they haven’t invented cell phones yet

    And some reporter from the Daily Planet had the nerve to be standing inside that booth while changing his clothes!

    Back in the day I had a mobile phone in my work truck and when the phone would ring, the truck horn sounded.

    My wife and I got our first mobile phone in 1986. We owned a business and my wife was on call 24/7. She had a pager by which her patients could contact her.

    One night we were out and driving through a not-so-good part of town when she got paged. We found a phone booth, pushed our way past the drug dealers and prostitutes to get to the phone. The following weekend we got a mobile unit mounted in her truck.

    The rate was only 60 cents a minute(1) up to a certain limit when it went up and that’s if you had service and if you went out of your area, you had to call a special number to tell them where you were so calls could be re-routed and roaming fees applied. Long distance billing was separate. Dropped calls were routine.

    (1) 60 cents a minute if you stayed within a whole minute. If you started a call and it lasted two seconds but “spilled over” into the next minute, then it counted as TWO minutes.

    Ahoy, ahoy.

    Reminds me of when my sister and family moved into a different house. Her kids came running out with a weird phone. It’s this round thing with holes and the holes have numbers under them!

    Back in the 70’s the Amateur Radio community had telephone capability with our handy talkies. When I used mine at the mall to phone home it would draw quite a crowd. Some of those spectators joined our local radio club and went thru the agony of learning the Morse code so they could qualify for an FCC license and have that capability.

    I laughed harder at this, than at ANY other comic I’ve looked at this morning. Thank you, Jim Unger.

    Nice work. You are only about three decades out of date.

    Wow, she found a phone booth? Or should I say she ran onto a phone booth.

    She’ll eventually tell him the whole story, she’s just leading up to it gradually.
