Talk About a Misprint!

Several years ago, there was a misprint in at least one local phone book. Instead of Home Depot's actual phone number, my phone number was listed (one digit was different). Fortunately, not many people use a phone book anymore, and my phone only rang once or twice a week. Then once or twice a month. Then they finally stopped (new phone book came out?).

My little Home Depot experience is nothing compared to this.
A misprint in a telephone book has led to some callers dialing a phone sex service while trying to reach a New Jersey political organization.

A listing for the Sussex County Democratic Committee in Embarq's white pages sent people to a sultry female voice inviting them to pay for sex chat.

Embarq spokesman Glenn Lewis told The New Jersey Herald of Newton that a transposition error caused the last three digits of the Democrats' phone number to be misprinted.

He said the listing has been corrected in Embarq's directory assistance database.

The organization's 800 number listed in the book's yellow pages was correct.
Insert favorite "getting *bleeped* by the Dems" joke here...
