AT&T phone operators know everything - they really do. This really happened to me in Salt Lake City, Utah. This being my first trip to the States, I was a bit unfamiliar with the workings of the phone system.... So, I see a payphone, put in a quarter and dial the number, let's say : 44-41-552-8467 - overseas phone call to the UK. I get the AT&T operator... "You're calling overseas ?" "Yes...that's right" (OK, so they have digital exchanges here, too) "You know you have to put some money in ?" (How did she know it was a payphone?) So I put in another two quarters - heck, I don't know how much it costs... "Oh !", she says, "You're from Scotland !" "Erm - yes...but how did you know ?" "Well, you put in 75c and you need about 5 dollars for that call." Made my day - I had a smile on my face all the way to San Francisco.
