    How about my seventh grade locker #282, combination, 9-25-12. Why in the world do I remember that!

    I can remember my phone number from childhood but still have trouble with my current cell number even though I have had it for about 15 months. I still remember my old cell number as I had to give it out a lot more. But yeah, I don't call myself. I "might" remember my husband's cell number but no clue on our son's number. I know my SS # and my husband's as well and "pieces" of our son's number. I know my DL number by heart because you can't even get your electricity in TX turned on without giving them that and since we are now in our 3rd rental, I've learned it pretty well.

    I have a 12 digit code on my cell phone, does not spell anything, and have that "memorized" but it's only available if I am actually unlocking my phone. I could probably figure it out to give it verbally if necessary.

    I have most of my passwords and PINs memorized but also keep a list in the safe for my husband. The safe combos are easy enough to remember.

    I can remember pieces of old addresses and finally got wise and wrote them down when husband was last job searching so we can have them when needed.
    I still don't know my license tag and we have had that for 3.5 years.

    I know my "member number" for the credit union and the 2 digit extension for the checking account, not the savings account though. But this isn't a problem.

    That's about all I have.

    I remember license plate numbers. Parents' cars from the 60's and friends and family since the 70's. I have a hard time remembering current plates for my car and wife's, but I know the plates from my daughters' cars.

    From my youth, I can't remember too much as far as numbers. I remember some of my phone numbers, but that's about it off the too of my head.

    I have plenty of work related numbers I remember these days though. Part numbers, catalog numbers, customers phone, zip.

    My mother's UK cousin's husband Roy worked in the tool cage at the Battersea power station.
    [​IMG]
    When we visited ca. 1972, he told us that
    when they first computerized (punch cards, etc.),
    he memorized all the newfangled part numbers
    so that he could dispense tools without messing with the computer first.

    And then they replaced the computer.
    And all the numbers changed.

    He said, "<bleep> that", and after that
    made folks wait while he used the computer to look up the tool number.

    This thread makes me feel old and sadly nostalgic. How much things have changed in the last 50 years.

    My aunt's rural phone number when I was a kid in the '60s was Great Shefford 397 - three whole digits - and was connected via a human operator.

    have always been able to remember numbers. Names not so much. I remember all my previous license plates, phone numbers, other peoples phone numbers from years ago. Addresses too, just about all numbers. I'm sure I have forgot a few over the years, but pretty much anything I think of I can remember the numbers for it.

    That's the oldest # I remember. I was 7. It was 1976 when we moved. I've been back there twice.

    There is no need to remember most #'s these days. I have a head for #'s, but can easily remove ones that I don't need. Saving a VIN# in my head is taking up space that something far more important to earning or saving me $ could occupy.
