    Whoa! A pay phone? Haven’t seen one of those in awhile.

  4. I love how your last two posts have really captured ‘life in a moment of facial expression’. Priceless.

  7. Great caption. Some things are the same all over the world.

  8. Have to laugh over this one. I can’t remember the last time I have seen a pay phone!

  9. There ought to be a time limit when others are waiting in line.

    LOL – that’s a great expression, like she’s always waiting for him.

      I got the same feeling and felt for her. I don’t own a cell phone and I don’t talk a lot on the phone so I don’t have much patience for those who do.

    Nice picture, TBM 🙂 Makes me remember my student days when some of the students used to take up most of the telephone time, making it difficult for the rest of us to receive calls 🙂

    • TBM says:

      That does sound frustrating. My first college roommate would stay up all night on the phone fighting with her boyfriend. She would scream most of the night. One night in the middle of one of their epic fights I unplugged the phone. She didn’t say anything to me. Instead she just went to bed. After that night she would take the phone into the hallway and close the front door. I could still hear her, but it was much better.

        Interesting to know that, TBM. Thanks for sharing. It must have been tough for you at that time, though it might feel a bit nostalgic now.

        It drove me crazy back then, now when I think of it I smile. years make things better.
