I know the answer is that nowadays each individual has at least one and sometimes more depending on his job, but now and then I still can’t help asking myself just how in the hell there are so many phones.
Truth be told, I still have trouble remembering that 548 belongs to us. When it calls here, I generally assume it’s from the States and ignore it. So far I haven’t missed anything important, but still. I expect to have the same problem with 382 when it starts rolling out next June, and for things to only get worse as demand keeps growing and we’re forced to add new area codes more and more quickly.
