A typical call to Domino's lasts < 2 minutes, and if
it's not actually a local call, you're almost
certainly not in the delivery area (and would get
redirected to the correct store).  Accidentally
dialing a nonlocal Domino's results in a $.10 bill
(and no pizza).

A typical call to a dial-up ISP is what, a few hours? 
Multiple times per month?  Accidentally using a
non-local ISP number can result in a bill in the
hundreds of dollars pretty easily (also no pizza).
