A story from your future. You will sit your grandchild onto your knee and tell the child a totally unbelievable story.
"You know, when I was your age, they used to have these houses, all over the city, that were built just to be a home for a telephone. The houses were so tiny, that only one person could fit inside, and even then,they could not sit in those houses. They were so small that you could only fit in by standing. The houses were proper houses with walls, windows, one door, and a roof. And the only thing that would live inside that house was a telephone."
Your grandchild will look at you with that child's expression of very deep thought. Pondering. Maybe this is one of those famous jokes that grandparents are known for. But it was said with the honest voice, not the joking voice. Your grandchild will then decide and say: You are kidding. If they built a house for a phone, someone would just take the phone away.
Now you laugh, and you add, "Well, actually those phones were tied to the house by a cable." "Why so people would not steal them?" "No, that was how all phones worked when I was your age. all phones were connected by a cable."
Your grandchild will not believe you. So you go and show the picture of yourself in a phone booth..
Moral of this story. The payphone is on its way into history. Finland was the first country to start to decommission payphones.Use this opportunity while we have it - and take a picture of yourself in a phone booth. Some day it will no longer be standing there.
