Have you used a paper phonebook in the past year?
Paper phone book? What century is this? :p
Yeah...had to shake the dust off it, too.
No....And I wish they would stop stuffing them in my mailbox.
There is a list on line you can request not to get phone books I had to register not to receive 8 different phone books and I live in small town USA.
Not to look up anything but for several other uses.
Just used one Tuesday, for it's intended purpose!
I rip the pages out, roll them up and use them for firefighters. It's a use, albeit not the intended one.
Not as a phonebook. They have many other uses.
That's exactly what I use them for too!
To start a fire, I want to thank who ever printed part of the Internet for me to start a fire!
Whats a phonebook? ;)
Apparently; it's still 1982 in Mississippi
(I love y'all ????)
I ran out of toilet paper once so I used the most useless paper I had around
Only to kill spiders.
I use it for starting the for in the BBQ.
Yes to raise my son up to reach the mouthpiece on his tuba
Yes I tear out pages to set dental models on after I pour them up in stone.
trying to look up a doctor's address..when you don't know the doctor's name, it's a pain..or a restaurant address..I have a hand me down phone so I always don't have access to the internet. they still send it to you even though you tellnthem to stop..
I don't have any friends... so no... no I haven't used one in a while. Now if you'll excuse me, i have to go cry in a corner and wipe my eyes with pages from my phone book that I will never use,
Oh!!! Thats what it is. My school has us use iPads so I never use this paper stuff. I take notes on Notability, tests and quizzes on Moodle, and read textbooks online.
No. If they're not getting a good return, they should stop spending the money.
Yes, but not for its intended use.... I used it as a booster for a student.
How can you opt out? I hate getting them.
Yes! There was a pizza coupon in it we used.
I tried. It was very frustrating. I looked online and found my info in ten seconds.
Yes to start bon fires and such.
Nope. There's Google now.
Goes straight to the recycling bin. Waste of money and paper.
I've thrown away a paper phonebook in the past year
No. I wish I could get off the phone company's mailing list. Thing goes from my front porch straight to the recycling bin every year.
Do you mean "Terry-Cloth"?
What is it? It's the booster seat I used at the houses of both sets of great-grandparents when I was smaller than 3' in height. Ok, maybe 4'. But I've only once or twice used it for its intended purpose, and then, it was only to gain familiarity with it.
You know, when you take a bunch of fibrous material (usually from trees) and water, then you blend them together in some way, press them out into really thin sheets, and when you're done you can print or write stuff on them ;)
You look up phone numbers similar to how you would in a printed dictionary.
My elderly dad still uses them. I went upstairs to check on him and he had all 11 phone books out, trying to find a number! Yes, I did say 11! Oregon has so many different phone books, it's nuts!
I thought they were booster seats for dining table....have I been wrong all these years??
Haha! Actually my husband tried and couldn't find what he was looking for. Had me grab my iPad. He's a little behind the times. ;)
I still let my fingers do the walkin'! Though it's not too unwieldy, as the white/yellow pages combined is only .750" thick. (And includes several REALLY small communities.)
Yes. We hung them up at the gun range and tried to shoot through them. Those things are tough.
My company doesn't have Internet access other than to company sites, so we often need to use one.
Yes...as a doorstop.
Not only are they useful to kill small insects, but they also provide different options for a certain subject. I discovered my dermatologist through the phone book. I love having one and using it.
I haven't used a paper phone book in over a decade in a way that was not directly related to spider-killing.
So that is why my kids did that! We ended up throwing the phone books away after that because we couldn't get them apart. :) We never used them anyway, so it was ok.
The last time I even touched a paper phone book was a couple of years ago. I picked it up off my front porch and threw it in the recycling bin.
Opted out immediately and haven't received one since.
I haven't used a phone book in over 10 years. I keep telling them not to send me one, but every year one appears on my doorstep. Such a waste of paper...
But their are tons of coupons on the Internet. Just search for them. And usually they are better than regular stuff. ....
