Get the phone; it's Domino's

Lynda Duffy
Former Editor

Here at the News, we always know when a holiday is approaching because our phone traffic increases. The reason is our 800 number is only one digit away from Domino's Pizza's number. At Christmas and graduation time especially, people start calling us to purchase Domino's gift cards.

Unless we are busy, these calls can be funny. Most folks are embarrassed when they discover they've called the wrong number. Once we provide the correct number, most folks usually say, "I'm so sorry to have bothered you. This must happen all the time."

Yes, it does happen all the time, but this is just one of life's minor inconveniences that breaks up the day.

People - especially locals - also call us frequently for phone numbers. I guess because we are the newspaper, people think we know everything. So we keep phone books nearby to cheerfully provide numbers, presenting the image that we do indeed know everything.

Travelers call us on their cell phones frequently, too. The questions vary. Most want to know how far away Grand Canyon is, if it is open today and what time does it close.

And, we don't even blink an eye when someone calls us and says, "I want to renew my prescription." We know they meant to say "subscription."

Keep calling us. You make us smile, even when we can't sell you a pizza.
