How to Wash Your Phone Book

My sister-in-law called me yesterday and when she started the conversation with, "I have a story for you that is bloggable", I knew it had to be good. She knows that stories like this should never be kept to yourself, especially when your sister-in-law has a blog where she likes to gab about real life, self-depricating stories. And let me just say this, I am so glad I am not the only one things like this happen to.....

Like many home occupants in current-day America, my brother and sister-in-law have fallen victim to the never ending phone book attack. Seriously, raise your hand if you even KNOW someone who has actually opened a phone book since 1998. Look around you. No hands. But it's like the people who make and deliver the books are living in dark ages. They constantly, quarterly, sometimes bi-quarterly, deliver more and more phone books to your front door. PEOPLE OF THE PHONE BOOK, I have one word for you: GOOGLE!!!

Ok, rant over. 

The bigger question for those of us who didn't raise our hand (all of us), is where to put said book? Well, my sister-in-law randomly put one on her dryer. Not a bad place, all things considered. Unfortunately, the book was knocked on the ground. In front of the washing machine. And unfortunately, dirty clothes got piled on top of the book.....

You see where this is going, don't you?

Don't worry, she sent pictures....




Ashley, next time, may I recommend Dry Cleaning??

Anyone else have a story that needs to be shared? Email me!

  1. used the book today to find a local plumbing supplier that had a unique stem repair kit we needed. Online search told me nothing.

    75% of adults use those books at least once a year, but ONLY when they are looking for a local product or service.
