When we went sailing with my father, we sometimes arrived back in the harbour and had to spend a bit of time to tidy up and put the boat to rights and we would use the phone box to call my mother to come and fetch us when we were nearly ready and she would drive down and pick us up on the quay. Rather than paying for the call, we would just let her answer and she would hear the pips for payment but with no coins inserted she would know we were almost ready.
