All I wanted to do was find out the temperature predicted for tomorrow. But I'd missed the television weather report. So I looked up the telephone directory. The index mentioned "recorded information services". Great, turn to page whatever. "Recorded information service numbers all start with 0055 [this is Australia we're talking about]. The services themselves are listed under 'D' for 'double-oh-double-five'". Great. Turn to the 'D' section, and look towards the end of the 0055 list for 'Weather', but it isn't there. So I started at the beginning. Fortuitous, that. The weather service is listed under 'A', for "Ask the Weather". You really do have to ask it, and nicely, too! It reads out a list of places, and when you hear the one you want, you must say "yes please", for it to go into the detail. I love intuitive ways to use things. Now I know why.
