Barry Sherwood has lived at the same house and had the same phone number for the last 10 years.
But according to the latest edition of the White Pages, he does not exist.
Sherwood, of Waimate, switched from Telstra Clear to Kinect late last year, after nearly 10 years with the previous provider.
''I kept my same phone number, it was just the fact the other company offered me the better deal,'' he said.
''So imagine my surprise when I discovered the latest issue of the White Pages did not have my address or number. They didn't tell me that would happen.''
Why in the name of $deity the paper would contact the old provider, seeing this is something to do with the new provider?
Logic does not prevail in the world these people live. Anything goes in print.
