Another Towson undergrad:
Him: Uh, I tried all three payphones in here and none of them work. Can I use your phone?
Me: Is it a local number?
Him: No, it's long distance.
Me: What did you dial on the payphones? It's weird that all of them would be down at once.
Him: I dialed a 301 number, but it just gave me a busy signal.
Me: Did you dial 1 first?
Me: Did you put in any money?
Me: YOU HAVE TO PUT MONEY IN THE PAY PHONES FOR THEM TO WORK.
