  • How many phone numbers do you have memorized?

    Random question...I know

    but I was just thinking about it....I only know probably six or seven numbers by memory

    I thought I'd start a pole, but I figured that we'd have people that would "admit" to knowing 100+ and then complain that my pole was flawed

    when I was a kid, I knew all my friends' numbers....now, I don't even know my girl friend's number

    I know my brothers old number, my dads, my moms, my old house phone growing up, my friends house phones growing up. My ex's old number. If you change it anymore, I don't make the effort to memorize it.

      I know 5. Mine, mom, dad, brother, and 1 good friend from back home.

      As a kid, I knew a ton more. All my friends home numbers, in high school knew the gf's, and a bunch more. Now, I just put it it in the phone and forget about it.

        I'd probably say around 30 or so. I remember a lot of random numbers, like restaurants that I used to order from before I had a cell phone with a contact list.

        I remember my old phone numbers...I'll post them so you can call whoever the poor saps that live there now...

        620-343-8993
        785-242-5508

        I also remember by high school locker combination (28-10-21). It's been 15 years, and I hardly ever used it. I have no idea why it's in my head...

          I'd be screwed if I lost my phone contacts. SCREWED I tell you!

            I knew more before the age of cell phones. I can remember numbers of grade school/high school friends, but have no idea what my wife's cell number is.

                    I know my old home phone number from when I was a kid. I know Minsky's River Market. I know my Mom's. I know my work.

                    That's it. I couldn't even tell you my wife's.

                      Interesting…I think I knew everyone in town’s phone number when I was a kid…

                      Now I’ve got:

                      My cell
                      Husband’s cell
                      Parents’ house
                      Mom’s cell
                      Dad’s cell
                      Our ranch
                      The restaurant my parents would always go to and leave us at home with a babysitter
                      One good friend from back home – her parents’ number
                      My in-law’s house
                      My cousin – whose number is randomly one away from mine
                      My office local
                      My office toll free
                      My direct line
                      Office fax
                      Our Providence office – not sure why that’s the only location I know

                      Actually - a lot more than I thought I knew.

                        Probably about a hundred. I have completely random, useless numbers still in memory, such as my childhood home's phone number (drilled into my head as a kid, in case I got lost), the Lawrence Journal-World (my first official employer), Time and Temperature, various friends from Junior High. From adulthood, very few. I too have become reliant on the cell phone phone book (and SIM card) for numbers.
