What's With The Small Phonebooks?
We used to always get a small-ish phone book from other companies, but I always used the big ol' Dex phone book as it was more complete, had more local info, etc ... . The small ones I'd either throw away or put in the trunk of my car in case I needed it.
Now I get my Qwest/Dex/Whatever phone book today, and now they're bundling a small phone book with it. (I also noticed that they printed an advertisement directly on the bottom side of the book, on to the side of the pages -- I'm sure that ad was cheap.) I wondered if this was some sort of supplemental phone book with more info, but no: It's just another phone book for people to keep around that has less extraneous stuff in it and Bend is just the latest market to get one.
