If your phone were to stop working as you were driving somewhere, would you have/know the phone numbers of people you might need to contact

in that situation? Like if you broke down.

No. 馃槵 I haven鈥檛 memorized phone numbers besides my own for some time now. I鈥檇 be in some trouble.

I remember all kinds of numbers, phone numbers, old phone numbers, license plate numbers of cars from years ago, driver's license number, account numbers. I don't have to think about them, they are just there. And, no, I'm not Rainman.

That鈥檚 really important and yes I do that when I travel.

I often can't even remember my number, so I'd be out of luck.
Raaii18-21, F
Yes I remember my ma's number
ArishMell70-79, M
No, I wouldn't. I do have an address-list but I don't take it anywhere with me.

The one printed number that does stay in the car is that for the breakdown recovery service, but without a 'phone...

I had to use it too, a couple of months ago and three hundred miles from home!
My mum鈥檚.

Yes I would.

You surely jest! Of course not! No more than I would have remembered them before mobiles when I wrote them in my pocket diary.

I wouldn't have a clue. But, if the phone broke down, how would I contact someone even if I [i]knew[/i] the number?

Or you could google their telephone number in the white pages.

my cord is too short to take phone with me

Just two of my kids
Just my husband
resolvingthesematters31-35, M
Yes I memorized some numbers
My father鈥檚, my middle sister鈥檚 and my best friend鈥檚. Their numbers haven鈥檛 changed this century.
NinaTina26-30, F
Yes i carry three phones
PhoenixPhailM
@NinaTina That must be [b]terribly[/b] cumbersome. 馃槺
[i]I[/i] can barely stand [i]one. [/i]

NinaTina26-30, F
@PhoenixPhail my phone always works

ArishMell70-79, M
@NinaTina On different services so if you need it where the signal is poor on one, another might work?
NativePortlander51-55
And just where would you call them from? 馃
Matt8536-40, M
@NativePortlander Exactly. You would have to stop someone or knock round at a persons house or establishment.
NativePortlander51-55
@Matt85 Because they ripped out all the pay phones 馃檮馃う鈥嶁檧锔
