Pay phones

In this age we live in, with smart cellphones, wi-fi and 24-7 instant messaging, a pay phone seems like something that should belong in a museum. But I like the fact that these haven't disappeared. You never know when you may need one. In fact, my mom often uses them with a pre-paid card to call from Spain.
En esta era en que vivimos, con teléfonos móviles inteligentes, tecnología wi-fi y texting a cualquier hora del día, una cabina de teléfono parece algo que debería estar en un museo. De todas maneras, me alegro de que no hayan desaparecido. Nunca se sabe cuando te pueden hacer falta. De hecho, mi madre las usa a menudo con una tarjeta pre-pagada para llamar desde España.
