Goodbye, twelve unsolicited phone books going into the recycling bin at our fourplex!

See you next year, when you come back as twelve new phone books made from recycled paper.

    Someone needs to tell the people making phone books that we don’t need those things anymore. I think YOU should! 🙂

      Jill: What about the little old ladies who don’t have computers? Or those of us who prefer paper (phone book) over plastic (computer)?

      Actually… I prefer awesomeness (iPhone) over plastic (computer).

        Frank, the little old ladies don’t go to or call new places, don’t ya know??

        And for those who prefer paper, well…they should give UP their preferences to save some trees and some power and some money.

        That’s what I think! 🙂

    It wouldn’t be so bad if we didn’t get a Quest white pages, Quest yellow pages, Verizon white pages, Verizon yellow pages, plus the Dex yellow pages. I mean, isn’t one of each (white & yellow) sufficient? I can remember, back in the day, when the white and yellow pages were combined into one handy-dandy book. Of course, that was in Montgomery, AL, which, although it’s the 3rd most populous city in AL, doesn’t quite compare to Minneapolis and the vastness of the Twin Cities Metro. I’d rather just stick to google for all my directory assistance needs.

      Excellent point. I’m all about competition, but we can’t even support the best of the bunch, because they’re all giving us free stuff without asking us.

      Searching the phone book for a better brew, I haven’t made it beyond the B’s.

      Just kidding, it must have been a neighbor’s box. Speaking of the front step…
