Incase anyone forgot 411 is the number one would dial in the US at least to call for information. In my opinion this is a defunct and archaic service, but I am sure there is some federal mandate that requires it to still be an option. In light of that information I also find that calling one businesses location to ask for the phone number of another’s location a waste of time.
It may not be a waste of time for the person seeking the information, but it is wasting the time of the employee who may know it off the top of their head, but most likely will have to look it up. This may only take a minute of the persons time, but for my money there about a dozen other things that can be accomplished that are of more importance.
I did not intend for this to turn into a giant complaint, but correct me if I am wrong, but it is 2017 right? We live in a day and age, where the vast majority of the population has immediate access to the internet via computer or more commonly a smart phone. If you have neither that’s on you as an individual, which more or less answers why 411 still exists. Let’s get it together people.
