I'm mildly startled whenever I still see a pay phone. Does it actually work? Not that I was going to put my ear to it and check. Pay phones were hygienically dubious at the best of times, and the last decade or so of neglect (and of use by the bedraggled sorts who still use pay phones in this era of pervasive cellphones) can't have helped.

    I always feel sad when I see a pay phone-like "no one needs me, no one loves me any more"! There are no long lines, particularly at airports, just waiting to get their hands on it. Things change, the world moves on and some things get left behind.
