“Our records indicate that you have elected not to receive the AT&T directory currently being delivered,” said the tag left on Chris’s doorknob. This is correct. He has requested to not receive any phone books whatsoever, from any phone company, for the last three years. AT&T doesn’t believe him, though, so they left him some phone books just in case.
I have visited http://www.yellowpagesoptout.com/ on a yearly basis for the last 3 years and yet I continue to get yellow pages. At least this year they left me a handy door tag acknowledging that I have opted out.
I’m not sure that “acknowledging” is the right word here.
