WATCH: Kids Have No Idea What Payphones Are

September 21, 2017


Here’s a way to start your day: Today’s youth are totally confused by payphones.

In the latest Kids React To video on FBE’s YouTube channel, kids are introduced to a payphone, but many had no idea how the “very complex” artifact works. The concept is mindboggling to these kids, raising questions like how do you text? use apps? watch YouTube?

Below, watch as they attempt to operate a payphone, navigate the buttons (especially the one they call a “hashtag”), and ponder over the horror of having to memorize phone numbers!

What do you think? Should kids know how to operate a payphone?
