SF posted this article at Core about a telstra customer who was complaining about his phone, and telstra wanted to have him committed because of it. Pretty wacky stuff.
The last couple of weeks I’ve had cause to use public payphones more than I have had all year, and I have to say the quality is pretty shocking. Completely hit and miss as to whether they’ll actually work, and it’s always after I’ve slotted the coins in that I realise that I might’ve had more fun throwing them into the nearby drain. And why the hell can’t they give change? The truth is, there’s many perfectly good reasons to start smashing the handset into the keypad … public payphones are such grim things.
But hey, I got 80% for my zen buddhism assignment – neat!
