Steamy, sexy voice answers road report number

  • Feb. 18, 2005 11:00 a.m.

You might say that BC’s road conditions are getting rather steamy, thanks to a typographical slip-up on the part of the (US-based) Phone Directories Company.
In the new Northwest Region phone book, which many islanders picked up recently at post offices, the number listed for the BC Road Report is actually the number for a phone sex service. “OooohÂ…. You’ve dialed the right number,” the female voice says, “be ready for this mind blowing experience.” She says a whole lot more as well, but we have young readers!
The correct number for the road report is 1-800-550-4997. (The incorrect number is 1 800 550 4999, to save you the trouble looking it up! Note: the voice says you must hang up at a certain point if you are under 18).
A Phone Directories Company representative said they regretted the mistake, and that they were doing everything in their power to amend the error.
