Default If You remember these

Now if you remember these then you are pretty old

1 coin operated radio and TV in motel rooms 10 cents for radio 25 for TV. for so many minutes.

2. 10 cents to use the stall in the men's room in train and bus stations as well as airports.

My problem is I do remember them but then I know I am old.

Hi...
I remember coin operated televisions at a particular motel I frequented years ago.
Coin operated vibrating bed as well.
Place was always busy particularly on weekends.

I'm about to turn 77 but I was 26 before I ever stayed in a motel. (November 1969)
So no I have never seen a coin operated radio or TV.

Here I sit broken hearted,
Paid to $hit and only farted,
Next time I think I'll take a chance,
Save the dime and $hit my pants...

I remember them. The coin restroom stalls usually had one free one but you really had to be bad off to go there as they were disgusting. that's how the dance, "The Limbo" came into being. Or so I'm told.

How many restaurants have coin-operated jute boxes in each booth, or condom dispensers in the men's restroom? No many.

Thank God the area was always clean!

I never crawled under the door but know some who have or so they say, never thought of the Limbo, how low can you go. Coin operated jute boxes were pretty popular in my younger day. I have a fist full of quarters wont to dance Angeline
