Friday Phone Calls

The Boise Chamber's front desk is no stranger to the odd question here and there. Although our reception often fields questions from those who are relocating to Boise or just curious about visiting the area, it is not out of place to receive the occasional bizarre query. In fact, our front desk has been subject to a litany of phone calls from all over the U.S. that could only be filed under the subject 'miscellaneous.' And some of these are just too good to keep to ourselves.

We like helping our members' and friends' weekends to start off with a smile, so every Friday from now on we plan to share a few of these phone calls with you here on our blog in a weekly segment entitled "Friday Phone Calls". Names of callers will be withheld to protect the innocent.




  • “Can you give me a phone number for a local animal advocacy group for bees?”
  • “I’m at Wild Bill’s RV Park and I need to know a place to do laundry in Boise City."

              “Boise City, Oklahoma?”


                 "I'm afraid you've contacted the Chamber of Commerce in Boise, Idaho."

                 [hangs up]

  • “Hello, I had a food safety question- I thought I was supposed to call the Chamber of Commerce for those.”
