The Phone Book

I do not understand why the phone book still gets delivered.  Why isn't it an optional thing? Or better yet why not a voluntary thing.  Call them if you want one.  Both Patrick and Jackie left them on the door step for a good week before they brought them in the house, only to shove them in a closet or under a bench.  I know that 100% of the population doesn't use the internet but honestly at least 75% does.  My mom does for goodness sakes.  So why waste the paper to print out these books that most people loathe seeing on their door step.  Oh and not 1 but 2 phone books.  Huge waste of paper and money, seriously.  Can we start a petition?

You are supposed to be able to opt out. I did at the last house. My books got delivered the next day. I'm sure you noticed, they are still on my porch at the new house.

I used to ignore them when they would be delivered outside my apartment but one day I was trying to find something for my son to sit on at the breakfast table and remember those darn phone books outside. So, I ran out and promptly grabbed two of them and they worked perfect for a booster seat.
