Another Advertiser Gaff…Argh… It Actually Caught Me!

I mentioned earlier about a gaff in another article today.  Well here’s one that actually affected me.

This time the Honolulu Advertiser actually pulled one off on me and got me to call the wrong number!

In today’s paper, they have a story for recruits for the US Census Bureau.  I need a job, I figured I give the number a call:

“… It is necessary to call and reserve a seat for the examination. To reserve a seat, please call 1-886-861-2010…”

So I call the number and it’s just a dead line.  So I’m thinking that’s odd.

So I do just 10 seconds of research and I come to the actual US Census Site and I find this:

“…It’s easy to apply! Call our toll-free Jobs line at 1-866-861-2010 and schedule an appointment to take the employment test. TTY users should call the Federal Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339…”

There is a big difference between a 6 and an 8.

Go figure… The number isn’t a Hawaii number and I’ll have to call back during mainland hours tomorrow.

It’s not like any of the Advertiser readers need a job or anything. ;)

I hope they don’t make a correction on this one…LMAO one less person to compete with…huh?
