Years ago I was on a heavily loaded tug boat going from Corpus Christi Tx to Baton Rouge with 3 big heavy loads. It took us 9 days, and cell phones had not been invented yet. All we could do is when ya make a set of locks sometimes the lock man would mail a letter for ya and for a traded food item he would give ya a news paper course it may be a couple days old. I had a gal pal on the bank then and was looking forwards to talking to her. We got tied up in Baton Rouge and I planned to run to the pay phones at the end of the dock on the bank. First I hadda don fire retardent clothing and boots hard hat and goggles and click a full face respirator to my belt and watch a 45 minute safety film. We worked 6 hours on and 6 hours off I hadda do this in my off time. By the time I got the necessary equipment rounded up and got to watch the film it was already 4 hours of my time gone. When I finally got to the 4 phones there on the dock, 2 had the cords cut, one had no reciever and the last was so jammed with change it was plugged tight. Back to the boat for some cutting pliers and electric tape back to the dock at a run finally got the cord spliced and a crackly dial tone. Slipped in a dime hadda make the call collect she wasn't home and her dad refused the charges. When I got off the boat several weeks later she was already dating some one else cause I didn't call enough. Do I miss py phones???? not so much
