San Francisco to Restrict Distribution of Yellow Pages

San Francisco is set to restrict delivery of yellow pages phones except to those who specifically request a copy.

San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors felt that while there are those who still prefer to let their “fingers do the walking,” two directories for every man, woman and child in this high-tech city is a bit much.

Personally, I think one is one too many. It always amazes me that there are still people who buy a listing in those books even though they get nothing in return. Oh well, it keeps the phone company fat and happy.Perhaps Grayslake will be next to restrict delivery.

May 26, 2011 – Quick update…We just got the Dex phone tossed out by our mailbox. Looks like the local communities won’t be taking their lead from San Fran after all. Bummer 🙂
