Hartford Pay Phone Contest: Pay Phone #27

Hartford Pay Phone #27 is on Market Street not far from where we got spooked by an animal in a highway walkway. It is reported that when asked if the portable bathroom located on the parking lot of #27 could be used the parking lot attendant directed the person to the tire store right next door. This brings up a quandary that one can face when traveling. When entering a near empty store solely for the purpose of using the bathroom does one make a show of pretending they are interested in purchasing a product? In this case the answer was yes. A good 10 minutes of time was wasted for everyone pretending a tire purchase was going to be made in an effort not to appear rude. A good call?
