Yes, if you must know, I did remember that in order to make a payphone call, you must have money. So I decided to whip out one of my limited but unique skills from back in the day when the world was normal: pickpocketing.
     I won’t go into much detail, but let’s just say that it went through my mind that since everyone ignored me in this place, if I got caught, no one would really do anything about it. So there was this chick walking her dog holding a white purse, and I sneaked my hand in and ended up with two dollars and a couple of coins. She didn’t suspect a thing.
     So I scurried to the payphone, reviewing my mom’s number in my head. I opened and shut the door behind me, inserted 3 quarter, dialed the number and waited. Finally! Some answers! My spirit rises…then falls when I hear the unexpected, the number you have dialed is not in service. Please try again. I frown. Maybe I got it wrong. I try again. The number you have dialed is not in service. Weird. My mom would never have enough money to change the phone number. I try my dad’s cell. The number you have dialed is not in service. Please try again. My brother Knox. The number you have dialed is not… Every phone number I could remember. The number you have dialed…
“Ugh!” I yelp in frustration, slamming the phone back in its place with anger. I take a deep breath and try again till my money runs out. The number you have dialed…  “Dammit!” I bang my head against the glass but quickly stop when I look up and see it cracked. I raise my eyebrows.
     Then a loud knock came from the outside of the glass, and a louder voice boomed. “Red-headed citizen! Turn around with your hands in the air!”
