Pay Phone Unplugged After Costing $69 Per Phone Call
A pay phone in a courthouse in South Dakota was JUST unplugged after they realized that it was costing the court $69 per phone call. That and they realized that it was no longer 1997.
The math is simple. It cost the county $763 a year to have the pay phone. There were only 11 calls placed on it in 2010. A little math shows that it cost the county $69 per each of those 11 phone calls. Welcome to 2011, we have cell phones now!
