Please use other phone

Not that there is a pay phone in sight of this helpful markered-in sign. Perhaps it should tell you to use your own cell phone.

P.S. "The pull" on the side of this phonebox is also vertical, and continues to make the case about why not to use vertical type. As Ellen Lupton says, "English is not Chinese".

It's very much the non-communication moment, eh? While we're in the "not that" mode, not that it matters, but the "PULL" is a bit more legible because of the cap "Ls" on this vertical version. It's kinda amusing (a bit kicky) that the "TO OPEN" are both horizontal.
