Says change is asinine evidence of bureaucracy run amok
' . . . add in two different area codes for the same geographic area and our future will be our past when Abbot & Costello, The Three Stooges and the Marx Brothers all reigned supreme. . . ' - JON HALSEY
By Jon Halsey
Well if this isn't the most asinine evidence of bureaucracy run amok!
No, we can't keep our same numbers. Even with "New Math" 10 digits DO NOT equal 7 digits. My 555-1212 number is not my number after the change, it will then be 270-555-1212. It's like saying that if my last name is Richard it will still be the same but I can't use it. I now must be known as Richardson!
Any one using a device with prerecorded numbers will be tasked with the chore of changing each and every number that is not already a long distance series. I predict that phone book publishers will throw in the towel and phone books will be a thing of the past.
After all these years, most "border folks' still struggle with "fast time/slow time". Now add in two different area codes for the same geographic area and our future will be our past when Abbot & Costello, The Three Stooges and the Marx Brothers all reigned supreme. - Jon Halsey
