Dear AT&T: Nobody in San Francisco Wants Your Fracking Useless Telephone Books, Absolutely Nobody

Friday, December 17th, 2010

Is there some law that says AT&T is required to deliver waaaaaaay too many phone books to San Francisco households every year? Could be.

If there is, wouldn’t it be easier for all concerned if instead of leaving all these unwanted phone books out in the rain for day after day, week after week, AT&T could just have its workers deliver them directly to the recycling bins out back?

What’s that, AT&T? People still love your phone books? No they don’t.

Obviously, there’s profit to be had, somehow, in this annual exercise, so oh well.

Group-Buying Websites are All the Rage in the 415 – $4 Movie Tickets are Back

I’ll tell you, the kids these days, they want to get a deal, but they want their friends in on it to. Or something. I’m not sure how all it all works, but all’s I know is that I don’t see the downside to forking over four bones, waiting for a letter in the post and then going to an AMC theater like Metreon or AMC Van Ness to catch a movie.

You’ll party cause it’s priced like 1999 (or earlier). Speaking of which, I’ll remember that year as the era of the WebVan – the things were double-parked all over town. Anyway, they would pick up your choice of DVD or videotape at BlockBuster, deliver it to you, and then pick it up a few days later, all for free! Of course you still had to pay the rental fee, but you had to wonder how the transaction made money. (It didn’t, actually. I think the investors got 1% of their investment back, by selling off the vans and the Herman Miller chairs, an icon of the era. ) 

Anyway, check out this kgb Deal, comrade. (They’re saying $4 is the 1989 price to see a movie. I forget, but it sounds credible.) KGB is a new outfit, so I assume that they’re offering a good deal to make a splash.

In Soviet Russia, KGB deal with you, but in America, KGB give you deal. America, what a country!

Check the deets – they’re only mailing out to bay area addresses.

IMO, this is a good, albeit small, deal.

Choose wisely.
