Reminds me of an old college story...

My old apartment had a buzzer / intercom thing that never worked. So there was no way to "buzz" somebody in. There was a payphone just outside the door to the building, so instructions were for guests to make a collect call to my apartment and ask for "Mr. Door" This would be the code for someone to run downstairs and open the door.

On some occasions, some knucklehead would accept the charges... Instead of a five minute major, they had to buy us a six-pack of beer...

Your long distance story is just as good...

Cheers!
