Does anyone remember when we used to use phone books? I stepped outside this morning and found a phone book sitting in a yellow plastic bag in front of my door.
I immediately took it to the recycle bin. I didn't even consider keeping it on a shelf.
But then I wondered why. The first answer that came to mind was, "It's useless."
This is just one instance that brought me to that conclusion.
Yesterday I was watching the NFL Championships on TV. By the end of the AFC game I was craving a gyros sandwich.
No problem. I went on line, typed in Gyros sandwich and my zip code and POOF. Two close by contenders popped up.
I called one, found out how late they were open, jumped in my car and scored a sandwich to carry out.
I didn't even think to use a phone book and I'm in their target demographic age wise.
Dex, Yellow Book people, anyone else selling a print directory we are not listening any longer.
Does anyone out there ever use a printed phone book. If so, let me know. The comment line is now open ...
