What Is This Strange Device?

What is this strange device?

That’s what a participant’s daughter asked when she saw a public phone in a Wall Mart.

Last week I did a program for Texas Roadhouse Restaurants and one of the audience members shared that her teenage daughter asked her what this was. She said, "What do you mean you mean a public phone" "I don't understand what you mean by you put coins in it?" "Why don't they just use their cell phone?"

Yes, coin operated public phones are now rare antiques found only in museums and Wall Mart!
