They're changing their names from Information Operator to Directory Assistance Operator. The reason: Directory Assistance is a more accurate description of the jobs they do. Think about it. They are there to help you find phone numbers when you aren't able to find them yourself. Like when there's no directory around, or when you need a new number that*a not listed yet Sounds logical? Sure. But a lot of people call for assistance and never realize that the number they need is probably right there in the phone book. At Illinois Bell, three-fourths of the calls to Information are for numbers correctly listed in the directory. We're hoping the new name will help remind people that the girls at Directory Assistance are there to help whenever the phone book isnt So remember, before you call for the, number you need, give the book a look.
