dear phone company,

Please stop delivering phone books to my door. You send them way too frequently and I don’t use them. In fact, I don’t know anyone who uses them. My 80 year-old grandparents are online – get with the times. It’s a waste of space. A serious waste of paper. And is totally worthless. It’s not my fault you have an outdated business model. Here’s a little advice: you need to revise your business model to one that can succeed in a digital world. In the meantime, please stop making ME feel guilty about throwing my phonebook in the recycle bin.

    But if they stop sending them, what will i use to hold my door open? Would i actually need to go out and get a door stop?

    And please phone book advertisers, stop wasting your money. That’s what’s paying to kill all the trees and make our recycling companies do all this extra work. If we can get a $.25 per plastic grocery bag tax on the ballot, maybe we can vote on taxing the phone book companies for every book they distribute. Hmmm. Anyone have Tim Eyman’s phone number?
