Changing my address!

September 18th, 2009 at 04:54 pm

What a pain in the neck that can be. Our county changed everyone's address this week to update their 911 system. Most of us have the same street, but all of the house numbers have changed. I have so many account, mutual funds, individual stocks, etc. and I will have to change the address on all of them.
Oh well, the stock market went up on Wednesday, the braves won on Wednesday (I am a day behind) and I saved $3 using my Ingles advantage card, so $5 more to add to the challenge fund.
Prev. total $13,130.00
today 5.00
new total $13,135.00

    Wow!

    We changed our zip code a while ago, which was a pain in the neck.

    I hadn't heard of house numbers changing. Ugh! Good luck - that will be a lot of work!

    One part of moving I don't look forward to - changing my address at all the various places!

    That is a pain. I've never had to do that but I remember when we moved how hard it was.

    But we never moved! I guess I will have to explain that to the credit score companies.

    That seems incredible ridiculous to me... how is that the best answer to lead 9-1-1 to serve everyone in a community? There has to be a better way, but it must have been too expensive for the local government to send the computer company back to the drawing board. Good luck explaining this one to the insurance company, the utility company, the credit agency, the... UGH! Sorry that happened.

    House numbers were assigned arbitrarily in the past. The renumbering is based on distance from the road beginning, so an emergency responder has a better sense of where the destination is and how far away they still are. They also cleaned up conflicting street names. The new structure will allow our emergency services to arrive on destination sooner and to keep up with the growth in this area. This one-time pain is a small price to pay for that improvement.
