Kids Today Don't Know How This Works

I spotted this piece of old technology hanging on a wall of the school.  It’s an old coin-operated pay-phone. As you can clearly see, it’s already broken. This one probably has survived a number of typhoons including the Supertyphoon Yolanda (Haiyan) that hit the country in November of 2013.

I bet those who were born around 2010 or even earlier don’t know how to operate this phone. 

In my younger years, the payphone is my main means of communicating with my parents while I was studying in a place far away from home.

  1. The phone system, switches and lines, or as it is often called POTs (Plain old telephone service) has slowly but surely moved to digital.

    The reality of the lines today, and the reason they are fading fast is that they are copper.
