Magic numbers

For the eleventh year running T.Aldous' number is listed in the Phone Book as the number for renewals.

Why he doesn't either change the entry or change his number I do not know.

Still, it gives him an excuse for not answering his phone.

Cow once had an office extension that was listed in the phone book as Information.

It was short for Information Systems Consulting Group, but nobody knew that.

Cow tried for years to get the listing changed. Several conferences where luscious donuts were in generous supply thanks to Cow greased the wheels to change the listing to ISCG, which nobody ever called.

Unfortunately, the kind phone guy who effected the change shortly thereafter dropped dead at a young age. Whether it was due to the donuts or the stress of changing a listing Cow doesn't know.
