XM Wrong NumberIt's always stinks when you have a typo, especially when it's on a printed piece. And it especially stinks when it's your phone number.

Like when XM Satellite Radio recently sent out 78,000 postcards asking subscribers to update their billing information... only to realize the number was off by one-digit. (doh!)

Unfortunately, the wrong number goes to a small business, who with only 8 employees fielded over 1,200 calls on Friday alone. And since it was sent out via a 3rd party, the calls may continue for another 2 weeks.

Had to go with the Simpson's theme :)

now this is a company thats on top of things

Must have been panero himself that approved the postcard.

Hey xm fans, call this number: 888-9-asshole

Actually the article says the postcards were sent out by 3rd class mail, not by a 3rd party...
