  • To make life hell for postal workers on the days they're distributed :(. The route I deliver to gets 6 phone books a year, all from different companies. Not all towns/routes get all 6, but they all get 3 or 4. Sucks for me!

  • Because there are still advertisers that want to advertise, and manufacturers that want the money to print them.
