oldtanker or JMech

Recommended Posts

I have a wire bound tablet I keep phone numbers of customers in. 

Each letter of the alphabet has 4 pages allotted.

The 4 pages for "S" are full  but no other letter is even close to 2 pages consumed. 

Why do most of my customer`s last names begin with S?   :ph34r:

Smith is the most common last name ( I think ). I remember in school the teacher said at one point in the past people only had one name. Then they started to identify people with their family or occupation. There were many different professions considered smith. Black smith, etc. so Smith’s are the most common name but they are not all related.

What does this have to do with Oldtanker or Jmech?

I don't know anybody called smith.

Loads of Williams, Evans, Davies and Cole..........

 

I suppose its a Welsh thing?

I think Cole and Scourfield (pronounced Scer field) are typically Pembrokeshire?

They both answer the tough questions thoroughly and eloquently.

And both let me down.

$hit head is listed too many times. Use their real names maybe?

Can you hyphenate another letter in front of some of the names? 

Example

Bob Z-Smith 

This would stack a bunch in another letter that sees less use ?

In your spiral scratch out the "Z" label on those pages, replace w/ an "S".  Prob solved.  If you have any customers whose name begins w/ a "Z" ditch them.  Losing their biz is nothing in comparison to having an crisply organized contact book.

Yer welcome.

Get a new book, allow more room for S, also keep an eye on obituaries, you may be able to free up space that way, I happen to know Crankers name doesn't start with S so eliminating him won't do you much good.
