How many phone numbers can you remember?

Inspired by @grevioustim

How many phone numbers can you still remember without looking them up and what are they for?

I’ve got 4:

My mobile
Mum & Dad’s house
Our old house in Portsmouth (we moved out in 1993)
Hendon Football Club’s old number at Claremont Road.

This can be banal too for the rest of the dayshift if you want to go off topic. RTF is not compulsory.

Current mobile (2011-present)
Old mobile (??? - 2011)
Mum’s landline (about 1996-present)

and of course, the Live & Kicking number.




My mobile
Mike’s mobile
My friend Vicki’s landline ~1994-2008
My old house from when I was born until 2003
ah fuck I know one of the numbers for my workplace too

Live & Kicking

I can also remember the address of the Big Breakfast house and use the postcode when I’m doing customer training demos at work

My number
Parent’s home phone
Parents of two of my mates from when I was a teenager (same as my parent’s, except the last four digits)
Lombard Direct

I should have qualified this with “full length” :slight_smile:

Let’s think

My home number
My mobile
Mrs CCB’s mobile
Various extension numbers at work
Various phone numbers of best friends from school

Was this a made up number or for something specific?

An old old number that is no longer in use

My mum is so old/Scottish that when I call her she recites the number when answering the phone. I know the number mate, I just dialled it!


Oh my mum does this a lot still as well. She used to answer her work phone with our home phone number half the time too.

surprised nobody responded with ‘that’s a lot of phone numbers’ tbh

Didn’t expect financial companies to come up. Mind you, you’ve both just reminded me that Smile used to be something like 0845 THE BANK
