do you remember?
personally only 3,
that is sad
I don't even know my own home landline number.
An undetermined amount... as I have no need to remember them now as my phone holds every number I've ever had. I can probably recall a couple dozen easy. Mostly family, friends, and a few clients.
Is this another one of these 'my penis is so big' things, again?
No, but seriously.
I remember only two numbers. Mine and GeorgesII's mom's.
Yep, just three. I can't think of a 4th that I'm even close to.
Office line, home, and my wife's # (which I forget sometimes)
15 years ago, I could easily remember the number of all my friends,
now if I lose my smart phone, i'm lost
Half of the time I can't remember where my phone is, much less phone numbers.
mine, brother, mother, father, grandpa, 3 or 4 friends. that's it.
But I have a friend of mine who remembers them all. He doesn't even have any stored in his phone... nuts..
Mine and my office's.
Mine, my parents, our cell, my office, wife's office.... And that's it.
Marc Maron just did a bit about this on his podcast. About how technology like smart phones are actually making us dumber since we don't have to memorize anything anymore.
I can remember friends parents numbers from 20 years ago because of the repetition of dialing them over and over again yet I can't remember my wife's cell phone number.
I also think ever since my town required you ti dial the area code for local calls those extra 3 numbers made it harder for me to memorize.
I have my parents number tattooed on my forehead...
my mobile number, that is it. Unless you are including 9-1-1?
I read the same argument about *written language* a few years ago. As soon as we started writing things down we started forgetting a lot of other stuff.
