77. Dialing for a Dollar

A: I don't have long distance service with my home phone.

B: So how do you make long distance calls?

A: I use a calling card.

B: Where do you get that?

A: I buy it at the dollar store.

B: How much is it?

A: It's one dollar for 100 minutes.

B: That's only a penny a minute!

A: It's a great price. But you have to dial a lot of numbers.

B: How many?

A: First you dial seven numbers, then ten numbers, then ten more numbers.

B: Yikes. I think I'll keep my long distance service.
