It was that way here until the 90s sometime. Now we have 2 local prefixes, 754 and 764. That makes no sense. Why make them so similar? The new one looks like a typo.

The letters on your phone dial were to help towns come up with a mnemonic device to recall your number. 754 was SKyline4. The next town over is 587: JUbilee7. So you'd tell people your number was SKyline4-1234. But we could skip the SK so nobody did that. But there are a few Skyline businesses still around. Skyline Drug and Skyline Cafe. Used to be Skyline Motors and Skyline Texaco, probably more.

True story. A guy comes to work at this software Mom & Pop shop I worked at in the mid to late 90s. He moved with his wife from the city to a town about 15 minutes from where we worked.

One day he calls his wife from work. A guy answers the phone. "Oops, sorry wrong number."

He dials again. Same guy answers the phone. Now he's thinking, WTF? So this time he decides to ask for his wife. "Is Josephine there?" The guy answers, "Yes, one moment please"

Now he's really thinking WTF? Josephine comes to the phone. It's not his Josephine.

Back then you could not only skip the Area Code, but you only needed to dial the last digit of the exchange code plus the last 4 digits to make a local call. Without thinking, that's what he dialed. And it just happened that this town had the same last exchange digit as the town where he lived so it worked. Except he ended up dialing an office for Esso Furnace Oil. Where it just so happened that the only girl that worked there had the same name as his wife.

So technically, he dialed the right number to the wrong place. {#Lol}

She paused and then repeated: "He should be brought up on charges, and EXECUTED." I felt absolutely sick to my stomach.

 
Wow, that's awful.
