Is it a natural instinct?
My brain is certainly wired that way.
Like My first office phone. The business I worked for was phone number 636363, hard to forget.
I put it to pals in WhatsApp groups and all kinds of shite came back, including 3-3-2-3 and 3-3-3-2. What kind of fresh hell is this?
That's just not right.
I remember when they first added a number to the area codes it causing a bit of confusion for a while before settling into the 5-3-3. I think it was a 4-3-3 originally (as the area code was just 4 digits). Those 3-3-2-3 types are like Jonny Foreigner Manager's coming to the old English Division 1 in the eighties with their la-de-da formations against our rigid 4-4-2's!
Whenever something happens to the royal family, I'm always taken aback that there are people who think it's something other than a ludicrous, anachronistic circus.
This brings me nicely to a pissed off post.
Whenever there is some kind of big news why is it on every channel - isn't that the whole point of 24hr news channels? Sure, have a news flash but then can we continue with the schedule and keep the news on the, erm, news channel where people who wish to watch the 10 minute cycle of the same news until something new happens can do so.
And another thing on the news, why do they send reporters to places in stories to tell us things like "this is the house where the murder took place." Ok, a picture of it on the screen would have done, the news reader could have told us that. You don't need to send someone to go stand outside the house like some ghoul.
