Ken Clark’s Sociopathic Yellow Pages Bias

Yellow Pages Kool-Aid drinker, Ken Clark, demonstrates (once again) that he is incapable of empathizing with people who have no interest in the spam his industry dumps on doorsteps:

I am still amazed that something as simple as a free phone book delivered once a year can get people so upset, when all it takes is 30 seconds to bend over and place it in a recycling bin if they indeed don’t want it.

Perhaps some other examples of free stuff that could be delivered to one’s door will help Ken understand how annoying it is to receive his industry’s print spam:

I am still amazed that something as simple as a big stack of blank pieces of paper delivered once a year can get people so upset . . .

I am still amazed that something as simple as a handful of empty beer bottles delivered once a year can get people so upset . . .

I am still amazed that something as simple as a steaming pile of dog crap delivered once a year can get people so upset . . .

If you ever find yourself in a situation where you’re pissing on Ken Clark’s leg and he freaks out, just tell him calm down, it will only be for 30 seconds, and only once a year (except in communities that piss on people’s legs 2-3 times per year).

  1. This blog has turned from The Deets into the vendetta blog.

    Is this content driving page views? I guess I usually come to read the Run MPLS and other online content analysis…

  2. @David, I’ve found that the content on this site tends to reflect my interests at any given time. Regarding page views as a motivation: if that was my goal, I’m doing it wrong, since these are pretty obscure topics.

    More Run Minneapolis posts are on the way, but you may want to take a few days off between now and then.

  3. Wow… you’d think that the Yellow Pages delivery trucks ran over Ed’s puppy when he was a child. It’s sad when what used to be an interesting blog has turned into obsessive ranting of a man who finds himself engaged in a one-man jihad against the unfathomable evil of the telephone directory.

    Yeah… time for decaf.

  4. @Fred, I think it’s unfair to suggest that I have only one one-man jihads.

    Better reading comprehension on your part would show that it’s not the directories that both me, but the companies who continue to deliver directories to people who no longer use them, thus wasting the time of millions of people across the United States, and putting an unnecessary burden upon local waste collection services (and limited government resources).

    Now, time to freshen up this cup a Joe.
