Are There Any Working Payphones In Sioux Falls?
I was driving through eastern Minnesota last week when I stopped at a gas station to fill up and looked over and saw something I hadn’t seen in a long time: a payphone.
Do you remember using one of these? Before everyone had cell phones, pay phones were everywhere.
I can remember using a pay phone in high school to call long distance and the operator would break in and tell me that I need to “please add .25 cents for the next 3 minutes.”
Now that just about everyone has a phone in their pocket, are there any payphones still left in Sioux Falls?
I check online and found The Payphone Project website. It lists over a hundred Sioux Falls payphones with phone numbers. I didn’t call them all, but everyone I called has been disconnected.
My guess is that payphones have now officially gone the way of the VCR, BoomBox, & Typewriter… and most of my wardrobe.
