Double TIL for me. I had never heard of 1-800-OPERATOR. I always used 1-800-CALL-ATT. Checked the article and learned that what I was using was what AT&T created in response to the misspelled redirect to their competitor.

I would use that also. I would just tell the message in the "call from" part, like hey pick me up.

Operator, could you help me place this call?

I feel bad for the AT&T guy that came up with 1-800-OPERATOR.

Wait, what are you guys doing? It’s an “o” dammit, an “o”!

Also, the final “r” doesn’t matter.
