Subject: Re: To drop a dime on someone
I've heard (and used) both 'nickle' and 'dime' to refer to who's paying for
the phone call. Might even use 'quarter' in some circumstances, depending
on audience. I have no contribution on the original query about dropping a
dime, but suspect Jesse and Randy are on a better track than speculating
about the price of phone calls.
