babies and porn

I spent most of saturday researching and finalizing our final 3 crib choices. it's time to make a decision already. unfortunately my bible, baby bargains, hazed our favorite nursery collection giving it a pretty horrible review. booo! our second choice has major shipping issues and we would have to pay an additional $80 on top of the tax and standard S&H fees. too much. our third favorite is from walmart and b absolutely refuses to shop there simply because "it's walmart." back to square one.

I had to put a call into babiesRus because I wanted to know if it was possible to see a particular crib in a particular store. simple right? the website said contact 1.800toysrus. makes sense. then I noticed babyrus had its own direct number. cool. so I called.

the phone rang. a woman picked up. "mmmmm. hot, sweet phone p*ssy is dripping..."

WHAT?!

I hung up and dialed the number again. "mmmmm. hot, sweet..."

that's a fine greeting from a store that sells nothing but newborn goods and toddler gear. nice. then I realized what I had done. I dialed 1.800 as opposed to 1.888. instead of boppy pillows and babybjorn I got an earful of cheap ($1.99 a minute?) nasty phone sex.

sooooo, in the end we found and fell in love with a completely different crib (complete with positive reviews, free shipping, no tax, and no unsolicited phone porn.) rock and roll!

and the winner is...

Very cute! Something similar happened to me when I called to schedule an elementary math seminar at a Christian college! I later found out that I was one digit off.

haha.. I do the same thing at work. One of my frequently called numbers is an 866... If you dial 888, you get porn. Nothing like dialing porn on your WORK phone.

the crib is cute! Congrats!

No wonder I like it, it's the same crib we got just with the darker color wood on the sides! (Baby Miro and Baby Mod (at walmart) are the same company, both made by DaVinci ;)
