    I’ve tried that, and it doesn’t work.

  2. MetMan says:

    Was this based off that movie where that guy picks up a ringing payphone is told to do stuff or get shot?

  3. Chris says:

    No, just my experience of walking by a ringing payphone.

  4. Yuccadude says:

    We had 2 payphones at my high school, and my brother would call one on his cell phone, because our lockers were across the hall from them, and we’d see who would pick up, and then insult them on the phone or just dumb stuff like that.

    I work in a store that has a payphone in it (Yay, part-time) and I like to answer it with “Thankyou for calling The Lord of Flies himself, Satan. How may I steal your soul for eternity today?” I usualy don’t get past the first line but there was a time that I and some guy talked for three whole minutes before he hung up. I’m just a bit wierd….

  6. Calthin says:

    Harlequin, will you marry me?

  7. Harlequin…. you are a genius!

    I love it and if there were any payphones around here I would so steal your idea!

    Nothing to say….

    “Pete and Pete” had to deal with the mysterious ringing phone, too.

    “Thank you for calling county mouge.”

    Sometimes you can call 1 number that is not 911 on payphones for free. The number is to the payphone itself; if you’re lucky you call then get a busy signal, once you hang up wait a bit, then the phone rings. Pick up, and if I remember correctly you just get the buzz. It’s been a while it could be a busy signal.

  14. Devi says:

    i LOVE calling payphones!
    if someone is unfortunate to pickup, i usually go with my favorite, “God, is that you?”

    In Canada, the pay-phones do not receive calls..

  16. Mint Sharpie says:

    Because Canada, unlike these festering States, makes sense.
    Yeah, I’m an American and I hate it. So sue me.
    I scared a lot of people by knowing more than the first two words of the Canadian national anthem once. ^_^

  17. DemonRex says:

    I wonder what Biff would put on the answering machine.

  18. Darkpheonix XIII says:

    O Canada! Our home and native land!…
    That’s about all i can remember, and that only because of That 70’s Show. I also am an american that hates being one. Sure, there’s alot of freedome, but only if you’re not native to america.
    As to Biff’s answering machine message, probably a bunch of incoherent cries of pain from trying to get the tape in, or something.

  19. Goodguy says:

    please tell me you know the pay phone number…
    all you have to do is type 958, and then the last 4 digits of the pay phone number, and then when theres a dial tone, hang up, and walk away, it will ring in about 5 seconds.
    at least, i remeber that BEFORE phone numbers became 10 digits… it may still work, but u may need an area code…

  20. MetMan.EXE says:

    Good job, Mint Sharpie!

  21. Caitlin says:

    Payphones in Australia also do not receive calls. At least, not any that I’ve encountered. They even have stickers on them saying “These telephones do not receive incoming calls”.
    I wish they did, though. I’d love to ring payphones just to talk to strangers…

  22. Dracat says:

    I’m Canadian so I can sing the whole Canadian Anthem. Unfortunately or fortunately, I can’t sing the U.S. Anthem. I would type the whole thing but I usually sing it kinda half french half english because I was in a french school for a bit and I am not good at spelling French words…… -_-;

    Also, Harlequin, sorry to burst your bubble but it’s Beelzebub who is lord of the flies not Satan. Satan, Beelzebub and Lucifer were originally one so it’s understandable but Beelzebub is the demon that is actually a fly. Lucifer is the lord of hell and the original fallen angel. Satan is the leader of the armies and the second in command. Beelzebub is another commander I think….. Sorry, I am a mythology nerd, specially with demons/monsters in general and had to say that…..

    In Russia: Payphone Call You!

  24. Vickster says:

    Next time a sales person calls, im gonna go with the Lord of the flies line.

    Virginia-City Morgue, you kill ’em, we chill ’em!

    Virginia-City Morgue, you stab ’em, we slab ’em!

    Virginia-City Morgue, you cap ’em, we wrap ’em!

    My sister’s friend made that up.

    PayPhone? What’s a PayPhone?


  27. Plankster says:

    Speaking of phone salespeople…I have always wanted to tell them that my Dad just got out of jail for hunting down a salesman who called us and brutally beating him. I would, of course, end the call with “Now, what’s your name, and who do you work for?”

  28. ~SyM~ says:

    Don’t forget the crematorium.

    “You kill ’em, we grill ’em!”

  29. Randomgal says:

    ~Sym~ isn’t that from the Simpsons?

  30. Quikngruvn says:

    “Bill’s Taxidermy, you snuff ’em, we stuff ’em!”

  31. Torg says:

    Another good thing to say when a telemarketer calls: “Hello, this is the National Do Not Call Registry.” What you say from there varies:
    “Now what is your phone number?”
    “A SWAT team will be at your location shortly.”
    “My God, you are an idiot.”
    Or you can make your own!

    Roadkill Roadhouse: You kill ’em, we grill ’em.

  33. Pom Rania says:

    Me, I know two verses of the national anthem (I’m Canadian), AND one verse in French.

    I’ve also known somebody who once went to some place where there were two payphones right next to each other. He called the Jenny Craig phoneline on one and a phone sex number (recorded) on the other. He then connected the Jenny Craig receiver with the phone sex speaker.

  38. Crazy Magnet says:

  39. Joanassie says:

  40. Hornswaggler says:

    XD I still haven’t figured out HOW people call payphones…I never even knew they had a number until a few years ago. Where the heck do you find ’em??
    x3 Randomly reminds me of the Matrix.

    “Hello, you’re reached some random payphone. Please leave a message with your name and phone number and somebody might return your call.”
