Oklahoma, like Illinois and many other states, has electronic payment passes that you can use on state tollways to avoid long lines at the tollbooth. The state sent out a mailer to 41,000 residents to inform them of this great new service. Unfortunately the phone number that was listed was one digit off and instead of getting a hotline for the department of transportation callers got a hotline for sex. Reuters reports that people were told they could "speak with 'exciting people,' such as lonely housewives, students and fantasy girls for $2.99 a minute." But the best quote comes from an Oklahoma transportation official about the flub. "We're not that exciting here at the authority. We prefer to think of ourselves as helpful." At least they have a sense of humor about it.
