310 Reasons to Use Email
My phone bills are bad enough. Now the phone company, in a nifty bit of sadist trickery, is making me work harder to pay up the nose. This new compulsory 310 prefix for local calls is sheer madness. Perhaps 'the powers that be bad' didn't take into account the fact that all of my friends and family members have blocked phone numbers. Which means that, in order to call up someone who might live ten minutes away from my house, I now have to punch in as many digits as it takes to reach someone in Prague. If I get carpal tunnel, Verizon will hear from my lawyers.
