When was the last time you used a payphone? How long will it be before you use one again?
Maytag appliance TV ads depicted a lonely repairman. You can add payphone repairmen to that list but for a different reason.
The payphone repairman is lonely because few people use them anymore.
There was a time when rows of payphones lined the walls at hotels and airports. Now the cell phone has taken over.
Bus depots may be the payphone's last stand.
