Hey kids! Do you know what this is?

OK, well, do you remember...

Gathering several pounds of coins prior to making an important long-distance call?

Stepping into a phone booth and quickly realizing someone had used it as a latrine?

Waiting for someone to finish a call so you could use the phone and wondering if that person was intentionally extending his call because he realized you were waiting?

Reading messages written inside the booth and realizing not much had changed since J.D. Salinger noticed the same thing?

Picking up the phone handset and feeling as if you were shaking hands with a pupating larva?

Trying to have a conversation as you hold the phone between the tips of your thumb and forefinger while keeping it several inches away from your ear and face?

"Hello? What? No, I didn't hear that. What?"
