    Throwing these things on the ground by my mailbox without me asking for them is littering plain and simple. Someone should be arrested. And put in jail. And executed.

    I say we take them and throw them in the lobby of the ones sending them to us.

    I refuse to recycle phone books. I have no desire to recieve one every 2 months. I tried to have my name taken off the list to not receieve one, and they still come. Call me an eco-villan, but I'm not the one littering people's driveways with unwanted garbage...

    After the delivery of phonebooks, I swear they sit on my driveway for weeks. And really? How many do we need? Why do they exist in the 21st century?
