Toledoan Worries About All Those Unused Anytime Minutes

Left: Where, exactly, are those minutes?

(Toledo, OH) Margaret Fletcher admits that she is not exactly "one of those technical-minded persons," but says that she can't help but be concerned about unused "Anytime Minutes" on her Sprint PCS account.

"Look - I was a Depression baby, so I learned to make the most of every dollar," she said. "Last month they gave me 200 Anytime Minutes, but I only used 180. Does anyone know where the other 20 went?"

Fletcher said it was not just the money that caused her to question the system.

"Somewhere, like maybe India or China, there are people who go to bed at night without their Anytime Minutes," she said. "Isn't there a way we can bundle up all those leftover minutes and send them overseas, or to the people of West Virginia?"

Left: And what about...

One organization, said Fletcher, could "do a world of good" by collecting up unused Anytime Minutes.

"Just imagine what those starving people in places like Ethiopia could do with Anytime Minutes," she said. "They could call up and order some food, that's what. If we could just find a way to get the minutes to them. Also, what happened to all those rotary dial phones, anyways? If we could use the old dial phones with the Anytime Minutes, we could solve a lot of world problems."

Comments:
Margaret isn't exactly what one would call a MENSA candidate, is she?

DENSA, yes.

MENSA, that would require a severe warp of the imagination...
 
preach on, sister. save those starving babies with your invisible minutes.
 
Ha! I have the same payphone in my collection! :)
