Anyway, while we were talking about this I started talking about the summer I drove to New Jersey by myself (I was 19). I told him I had to stop every 3 to 4 hours to call home so they could track my progress. Our conversation......
Nephew: why didn't you just call from the car?
Me: I didn't have a phone (which got a suprised look from him) so I had to stop at a gas station & use a pay phone.
Nephew: you had to pay to use a phone?"
Me: Yep, had to deposit quarters in it to make a call
Then after sitting there a few minutes he asked me: how did you find your way out there without a phone?
This threw me for a second and then I laughted (I realized he was talking GPS on our phones). I still have an atlas in my car so I pulled it out and gave it to him. Talk about a puzzled look. Guess I need to teach him how to read a map!
