I often get a kick out of products and services that are named in a funny way, especially when so much money and time are invested in hiring experts, etc.
But what about phone numbers?
Well, when I switched to the current toll-free number, I had a list to choose from and, in the end, went with the current 888-771-1515. I examined the keypad to try and figure out if the number spells any obscenities. (Go ahead. I know you want to check for yourself. I'll wait.) Other than that, I was good to go.
Last week, I was accessing my voice mail and, instead of the 888 prefix, I used 800. (Old habits die hard.) I was surprised when, instead of hearing the usual greeting, I heard a man promising me that I could speak to women from all over the country, if I hung up and dialed another. (Go ahead. I know you want to check for yourself. I'll wait.)
No lesson here that I can think of. I just think it's funny.
