Today, 50,000 copies of the new edition of the town's phone book came out. I manage a pizza place and bought a full menu ad. Apparently the ad designer got confused, as they placed my cell phone number in huge bold letters at the bottom of the ad instead of the store's phone number. FML

Theres a way to switch the number from that to your pizza places phone and then get a completely new cell number. Just call your phone companies.

Good advertising for free. Just use the cell for the company and get a new cell... And of course, refuse to pay the ad. Win-win-win.

hahahahah, thatd suck

For a good time call _________.

YDI for not checking the proof!

YDI OP you should have checked the proof!

Anyone know the name of this phonebook? Prankcall time..

your pic is amazing:]

get ready for many prank calls

comment bug is ape shit

This isn't an FML, it's just an honest mistake. Just put a message on your cell saying to call the other number or lying that the number changed.

You had to have approved the proof - YDI.

hahahaha ohh I get it now..

Ahaha well you'll probably be needing to get a new phone plan, eh?

I'd be changing cell phone numbers in a hurry. fyl, op!!

Call forwarding. If the restaurant delivers, they probably have a group cell plan already. Just transfer the cell number to a company account, forward all calls to the business line and get a new number for yourself. If there wasn't a proof for you to OK, bitch till the phone company pays for the costs involved.

I was thinking the same as thelrish but then if it is 100% their fault I'd sue their ass as well. Why not make a few bucks of them revealing your private number =]

Good plan Ms. Doe. I never had a group plan or whatever when I delivered pizza though. We made tips + minimum wage + 75 cents out of the $2 delivery fee.

They do this over and over again. I'll bet you listed your phone number when asked for the business number. YDI.

totally agree with you! the only reason that they would list the wrong number and have the wrong number to list is if the person taking out the add wrote the wrong one down! so yep i agree the OP deserves it.

Oy. That is truly awful! I'd change my number ASAP if I were you.

better keep the phone off until you change your number

that is going to hurt forever...time to change phone numbers!! definately not deserved...

why you always double check when it's someone else's work

your fault for not proofing the ad !!!

hahaha that sucks ! call them and complain

#13 is spot on. Get all incoming calls to the cell redirected to the business phone and get a new number. Get the directory people to pay for both, unless they have a signed-off proof of the ad with the wrong number. The unavoidable problem here is that I imagine a lot of people wouldn't call a cell phone for a pizza because it looks unprofessional, or they'd get charged more for the call. All round, it sucks though.
