Friday Fictioneers: 28th July

Phones have changed an awful lot since Alexander Graham Bell hit the jackpot with his invention.

Listed as a ‘Unique Feature’, it hung like some kind of urinal on the wall.
The No Smoking sign was a neat touch.
Whoever owned the property before had a sense of humour.
Its use was certainly not as originally intended but few would guess what it was now.
The kids would love it.

“Can we use it Daddy? Can we? You promised!”
Sam gave his sons a quarter each to use ‘their personal phone’.
They lifted the receiver and gently put the coin in the slot.
The little bell jingled, and the candy was dispensed into the tray beneath.



About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    That’s a good use for all the old pay phones lying around somewhere! Good fun.

    They could have found worser uses for those relics. Well done

  5. Excellent! There is a red phone box near me that dispenses coffee. I don’t think it squirts it in your ear, at least I hope not!
