I’m at a payphone…

…trying to call home.  (If you’re singing the Maroon 5 song right now…sorry)

Firstly, I have no idea why there are payphones here in Jakarta, as it seems that everyone has a “hand phone”.

Secondly, if payphone booths looked like this in North America they probably wouldn’t be disappearing as quickly as they are.

Thirdly, what is that above the phones?  The demon of telecommunications, from what I can tell.  Haven’t you thought, once in a while, that your phone experiences have been hellish, from billing to service to dropped calls.

Any guesses why there’s a demon’s head staring out from the payphone?
