Omniscient AT&T phone operators.
(original, national stereotypes, chuckle)

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.
