Has anyone ever “tapped” a phone # on a pay phone?
That is, instead of depositing your dime (as it was back then), “tapping” the number out with the switch hook. So, to make it simple, if your phone # was “312,” you’d tap it thus: three quick taps (pause) one tap (pause) two quick taps.
You could do this back in the old pulse days–at least in some areas.
Anyone else heard of this?
BTW, a “0” was 10 quick taps.
