Man's front-yard pay phone a call back to a familiar time
Prank calls and their anonymity inspired one man to install a fully functioning pay phone in his front yard.
as time goes by, Some things just get rarer and rarer to spot. I googled and you know, back to facebook and marketplace and search and they're out there, but nothing that I really like and I came across this all the way West Waverley or something brian Davis searched for that perfect decoration for his home remodel. Then an idea rang down memory lane. It was like a thing you did growing up. So we still do to this state and be like, all right, let's call mom, you know, And then you just play that little part of Stevie wonder I just called to say, you know, I love you. And then you hang up frank calls and their anonymity, I call that inspired Davis to install a fully functioning payphone out in his front yard that goes pretty fast, let's connect to my landline. And at first Davis had forgotten how to use a pay phone. I'm like, oh my gosh, that's right. You have to add four quarters I think in the day it was a quarter or something or a dime, A throwback to the good old days. The quality is great when small computers weren't in our pockets and hearing the voice of your loved ones cost you a little something. It's been really lovely. Right? It's just so funny when somebody does come to use it and you don't mind having people on your gosh, no, I think it's a hoot. I think it's so fun. You'll see him walk over and they're just taking pictures. Some have used the phone that, oh my God, I'm gonna call the phone so it's ringing and the gentleman jumps back out of his car. He runs the answers. I'm like, how do you? And he just loved it. He just thought it was the coolest, funniest thing. Times have changed, but a purpose of a phone hasn't. This little one off tulip street and and over Minnesota is bringing people together near and far, just calling to say, I love you.
