Do you get a second Yellow Pages listing for free?

I think I may have messed up on my listing in the yellow pages.
I got a call from the account rep. last saturday. She was working saturday because the directory was closing (last) monday.

I'm a solo operator, but I service big lawns like factories with a big Toro 580-D. I knew exactly how I wanted my listing under the "Lawn Maintenance" catagory:

Haggerty Lawn Maintenance
Groundskeeping Services..................................382-7505

I added "groundskeeping services" instead of an address on the second line for no additional cost.
Then she tells me that I get a second listing in the yellow pages free!

The catagories were:

Landscape Contractors
Landscape Designers
Landscape Gardeners
Landscape Equipment & Supplies
Lawn & Garden Equipment & Supplies
Lawn Maintenance
Lawn Mowers-Retail
Lawn Mowers-Sharpening & Repair

I picked Landscape Gardeners for the second listing.

Today I looked in the yellow pages. The only other listing under the Landscape Gardeners heading is Rex Dell. Rex does fine work, but the last time I heard, he only had a 21" mower. His specialty is shrub and flower bed maintenance and just a few hundred square feet of finely kept grass.

I've really messed up the yellow pages. We'll now have the largest and the smallest lawn cutters (only) under the same listing.
Now I see I should have said Landscape Contractors, or maybe should have just said NO.

Has anyone else had problems like this? What are you listed under in the phone book?
