Phonebooths in Laredo

You might be asking yourself, "Phone booths? What a lame-o topic". And, hell, you might be right. Its not a very a interesting blog post. Where it not for the fact that last Thursday I needed to locate a pay phone, and I couldn't for the life of me, find one that actually worked. Here is how things went.

You see, I wont lie to you. I'm a very careless person. I lose things quite easily. Its a gift from above. I also have a terrible memory; I lose track of names, numbers and sometimes of the subject of what I'm talking about. Like right now, ...what was the subject of this useless rant???..oh yeah, phone booths. Well, I lost my cell phone after carelessly leaving it at a friend's house, but I need to urgently make a phone call.



Well, I had a quarter in my pocket, and being that I live my life like its 1995, I thought I could just find a public phone really quick and make a phone call. Little that I know that a couple of things have changed since 95'. Much to my chagrin, phone calls now cost $.50 and it's getting harder and harder to spot a good, working public phone, preferably in an area where one is not likely to get mugged.

After driving around for for a good 20 minutes, I finally found a good phone and made my phone call. Later that day, I also got back my own cell phone. I think I am single-handily keeping T-Mobile in business for I have lost about 7 cell phones in a short span of 2 years. But, lesson learned. Don't lose my cell phone and always carry two quarters in my glove compartment. Just good luck in finding a good working phone booth for ET to phone home.

Not sure anymore exactly where it is, but I seem to recall it's somewhere over in the west side behind LCC.
