When younger and chasing girls, I'd drop into the telephone office where Ethel would place the call and I'd give her a dime for 10 minutes of cooing with Cheryl.

Of course, Ethel was listening to every word and reporting same to everyone in town.

Crank phones were for "phoning fish"

Put the leads in the water, turn the crank, and the electricity generated will stun the fish and cause them to come to the surface... better not let the warden catch you with one....
