The Pay Phone

In Trinidad and Tobago, people hardly use pay phones; the reason for this is: it is more economical to use a cellular phone.

Recently, I saw one at the roadside and reminisced about the days when there used to be a long line of people who waited patiently to use the pay phone (Those days are long gone).

There are still a few around the country, but I have a sneaky feeling that most of them are either highly problematic or non-functional.

      [ Chuckles ] Naima, I said that there are a few around; it’s just that they are not in large numbers as before.

      Thanks for the sentiment and for dropping by.
