It was bound to happen.
A man wants to go to a bar with his friends and stays a little longer than he should. He knows that if he calls his girlfriend/wife/significant other that she'll be mad at him for going to a bar. He needs an alibi. His friends will cover for him. But if he whips out his cell phone in the middle of the bar, she'll know where he is and still be mad at him. It's too cold/rainy/crowded to step outside to call.
What is the poor chap to do? How can he convince her that he's not at a bar?
Enter the Teletransporter. Yes, it's a real thing.
It's a soundproof booth from which he can make a most convincing call. There are different sound scenarios to play while he calls her. There's only one catch. The only ones available so far are in Argentina. That's quite a ways to go for a beer with your friends just to have a cover with the Teletransporter.
