One of my summer jobs during college was working for Customer Service at the phone company on Van Nuys Blvd. I greeted customers and helped them trouble-shoot their phone bill issues. I often directed them to phones on the wall that would dial a customer service agent (in an office behind the wall) who would hopefully help them solve their phone bill problems. One day I helped a man who showed me his phone bill that had a 880-minute long distance phone call on it!! That means talking for over 14 hours! I sure hope the poor guy got his bill taken care of. Now days doesn't everyone have an unlimited calling plan?
I was reminded of this story last night when I hung up from talking to my sister-in-law after 142 minutes! I'm glad it's all part of the plan.
