doh

away for the weekend, so just a mini-thought to share... I got a call today from the phone book company, attempting to make sure I'd received the 20 pound pile of paper I'd had to haul to the recycling cart. yeah, I got it, but I threw it immediately for recycling. Cause, like, we live in Silicon Valley, so we look stuff up on the internet, duh? Actually, what I said was, "I did receive it, but I don't really want it. Can I unsubscribe anywhere?" The nice gentleman informed me that the information on how to do so was located on page 2 of the book that the recycling collector picked up a few weeks ago. Oops.

Sweet! I did the same thing last time we got one. Who needs a paper phone book anymore. BTW, didn't know you were in the Silicon Valley! Us too. We're neighbors. :)

you're lucky they let you unsubscribe! here they just drop off a bajillion books per apartment building, and there ain't nothing you can do about it!

I'm interested to see if they actually stop delivering it or not...
