You missed a golden opportunity.

They are restructuring after bankruptcy - probably can get a full page for $40/month.

And all the tire-kickers that come along with it...:shifty:

We have to use them, the yellow pages are still used quite often by the 55+ crowd

I don't know who's worse? This guy today, or the yellowpages.com homie that called last Friday and actually hooked me on the phone for a few seconds.

The homie never did say who he was with, introduced himself as Mike, as if I had known him for years, lol
He mentioned both att, and yellowpages.com, through out his ramble of a sales pitch. I asked him? So who exactly are you with a or b? He says thats us, were the same company,...:whistling

I was thinking really hard how to get off the phone.
So nicely, I just told him I had to leave, and had to get off the phone.

What was I thinking being nice???

No more of that! :mad: I've had it, with these cons!!!

Wow, I'd almost call them ethical.

Most of the time these types leave nice ambigous messages like this:

"Uh hi, yes, can you call Brandon D Bag @ 555-555-5554 about your remodeling services"

Then you call and you find out it's an outfit like them.

I might have fell for it, if;

1. I didn't have caller-id, and

2. They sent a smooth talker, that could sell ice to an eskimo!

Up to the point where I figured out, they are only trying to pry into my pocket. :no:
