Here in suburban Omaha, I have yet to receive my DEX (formerly Qwest DEX )phone book despite the fact that the old book officially expired in June.
I have a book called Yellow Book that arrived about a month ago, but it’s incomplete–no residential listings, only yellow pages. Last year’s Yellow Book and previous years’ Yellow Book equivalent McLeod USA Star Directories had both white and yellow pages. This year, I have to go to Yellow Book’s website to find a residential number. What a pain if I’m out in the yard with the cordless and need a number-- this ain’t no laptop here, you know!
My sister in the City of Omaha got her DEX book about 2 weeks ago, still about a month late of when we’re all accustomed to getting new books in this area. And about 3 weeks ago, when we were in the final cleanup stages at mother-in-law’s former home about 1 mile south of my home, my wife showed me a rain-soaked DEX she found on the front steps ( the idiot carrier put it in a bag but forgot to tie the bag shut and face the opening downward ).
The house next door to me, which was recently sold but hasn’t been moved into yet, got a DEX delivered to it sometime yesterday. Since the bag was lying wide-open at the top and the book would have been ruined anyway, I swiped it this morning just as the thunder started to rumble.
Do others have the same problems getting phone books that we’re having this year?
