A familiar yellow bag, with a familiar yellow book should have arrived on area door steps this past week.
The 2012-13 phone book is here.
Once upon a time, the arrival of the latest phone book meant a chance to see if there were some new businesses you might want to patronize, a chance to toss out the old and bring in the new. A chance to see if they finally spelled your name right (they didn't).
Today, more often than not, the phone book has been relegated to the pile of forgotten items. It's still in its yellow bag, weeks later, collecting dust. Or, it's recycled just as quickly as it arrives.
What about you? Are you using the phone book just as often as you did 10, 20 years ago? Do you use it at all? Do you wonder why we still get them, year-in, year-out, without fail? Take our poll and chime in below.
