SWBYP's

SWBYP's

I noticed the new AT&T white pages have arrived at various locations in downtown St. Louis.

How long, do you suppose, it will take for it to arrive at my house?'

Admittedly, it's dated March 2006, so I'd be just fine if I got the new one by the end of March.

Given that the sub-contractor appeared last week to still be hiring delivery drivers via the classifieds, it might just take that long.

Some would say the White Pages are outdated, since you can get much more info on the Internet. But when you're at home and don't have high-speed Internet access, it's much more convenient. After all, getting online via dial-up requires tying up the phone line, and taking 5 to 10 minutes total to look up a single name.

Sometimes, printed resources are actually more convenient.
