Old Tech Problems

Pete has invited Marsha to take a sneaky peek round the apartment he will be renting

“Nice place, Pete. It has an arty, antiquated vibe about it. I love… Why is there a tin can hanging from a string on the wall?”

“Oh, that’s the  telephone.”

“Does it work?”

“Well, it hasn’t rung yet.”

“I’ll try,” Marsha picks up the can, listens to it. Taps it on the wall. “HELLO HELLO? Nah, the line’s dead.”

“I’d better get an engineer on to it then.”
