    so, i am the red telephone box officer of my college. problem is, the box has no phone. so i need ideas of what else could be put in the box, what other uses could it have?

    (and NO it aint a police box, for all you people who are thinking up dr who jokes)

    what would you use a red telephone box for?

    How come we never had a red telephone box officer when I was in college?! I can't help feeling I missed out somehow :(

    You could turn it into a shower cubicle? That could be fun, especially if it is still in situ at the side of the road......

    Put in a toilet and sit a shop window dummy on it.

    Put an intercom in directly linked to the bar, so you can order drinks without having to queue up at busy times!

    I can't believe I'm the tenth poster in this thread but the first to ask the question...Why on earth are you the officer of an empty unused red telephone box?!?!?!? Did I miss something here??? :confused:

    - maybe to give her something purposeful to do in life?? ;)

    Surely the most obvious solution is to turn it into a practice room. You might not get many trombonist taking you up on the offer, but cornet players would. Include a copy of Arban and a beer holding facility and you're away....

    - on the same lines use it as a pay-as-U-go internet cafe! (or a tMP hotline!)

    I must admit I wondered that when I read the post too, but somehow by the time I got around to replying I forgot to ask :oops:

    It's proximity to the bar makes it ideal as a DDB! (Drunk Drop Box). At kicking out time anyone who can't stand or remember where they live gets put in the box, to be picked up by friends!. Any unclaimed students can be sent to the local charity shop for slave auction the next day!

    jeez I can't believe no-one thought of this :D

    there are basically three joke positions in the jcr (junior commen room, basically the college goverment)- keeper of the college garlic (for use on couples who insist on being coupley in public), keeper of the college oil can (for use on anything that squeaks) and the red telephone box officer. my job is to maintain the red phone box, and to promote the work of sir gilbert giles scott. but i want to do something amazing to the phone box- keep all your suggestions coming guys!
