There’s been some buzz in the blogosphere about the “bill in a box” caused by this video, from Justine Ezarik, regarding her phone bill from AT&T. Not long after, AT&T customers received a text message indicating AT&T was removing itemized detail from their phone bills.
While 300 pages for a phone bill is excessive, I’m not surprised. Our business phone bill from Sprint usually runs 250 pages on average, and that’s just minutes no text messages.
Paper is a predominant part of our daily lives–bills, junk mail, Gmail Paper, and don’t forget the endless paper airplanes currently being engineered–in spite of the fact that we live in the digital age.
Does anyone remember that, with the advent of the computer, we were promised a paperless office? Sigh…
Just your average, self-abused futile worker.
