Default Turnpike hotline a sex line? This only happens in Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY, USA - Oklahoma highway users wishing to call the state about electronic payment passes were mistakenly directed to a sex hotline.

Oklahoma Transportation Authority spokeswoman Brigette Berglan said the state's turnpike authority had made an error in a letter sent to 41,000 people. One digit was wrong in the telephone number for callers seeking advice on how to deal with toll gate payments.

Instead, they found themselves calling a sex line where they could speak with "exciting people", such as lonely housewives, students and fantasy girls for $2.99 a minute.

"We're not that exciting here at the authority. We prefer to think of ourselves as helpful," Berglan said.

Those who received the incorrect notice were sent a postcard with the correct number.



Only in this screwed up state, would this happen..

Sounds like an honest mistake to me. My guess is that somebody in the office that sent out the letter just typed 1-900 accidentally instead of 1-800. Yes, it had funny consequences, but it was probably unintentional.

A FAR more serious issue here, IMO, is why a HOUSEWIFE would do something like this on a sex-phone line. Students and " fantasy " girls are one thing, but a HOUSEWIFE? That is a no-no....a married person (male or female) should never, EVER do something like this....at least not while married.

Because some people get excited about the idea of messing aroudn with an involved women. Its a way to target the older folks. But its mor like saying... chat with old women in thier 30's and 40's.

I highly doubt it's actual housewives on the other end of the phone. It's probably the same women that answer the phone for all the different lines regardless of the option picked then they just roleplay the selection.

Trust me, I am waiting for the "monsoon season" to pass.

If I could find a job that was at least respectable, then I would hop in my covered wagon and yell, "WAGONS WEST!" and be there shortly.......

Of course I would have to stop for a while in Vegas and get rich,,,,,,,

respectable? homie do you know how much you make as a server here in california's chain restaurant? you will meet beautiful and happy people(some of them mite slip their digits to u. both gals and guys maybe?) and you'll for sure be able to afford a room in O.C.

have u read the msn.com today? this couldn't come @ a better time

Consider this - Jennifer Aniston used to wait tables, Madonna served donuts at Dunkin' Donuts, and Jerry Seinfeld hawked lightbulbs as a telemarketer.

if i were u, i'd applied a job @ the post office i dun think u'll get shot working there.. and u do get a 5-week vacation sounds fair to you, doesn't it

Post office,,,,, wasn't the postal post office employee from Oklahoma??? (just wonderin')

But, do you know if they transfer?? The reason being is that they have the regional training facilty in Norman (where OU is) and that would be extra nice if I could just leave Oklahoma with a job and not have to worry about it.

I mean hell, since I was sick all weekend I didn't get a chance to do any of the things I had planned for the weekend so I have taken today off to do them. If they really do give a month's vacation then hell I'm in like Flint, but also I have heard that it is really hard to get out of places like the post office...

I hate Oklahoma. They only serve 3.2 domestic beer! How can you live like that?

I guess it's better than her, him, or it ****ting it out for real on the street.

I concede your point, however. People are gross.

it's prolly not as hard as getting out as getting into another organization. then again it probably shouldn't be a challenge.

also, start applying UPS drivers. the wait is about 2 years and starting base salary is 4k/months. how u like dat.
