    There's two different rulesets that govern this. Associated Press Handbook (AP) vs the Chicago Manual of Style. [Here's](http://apvschicago.com/2011/05/numbe...-numerals.html) a handy article that explains the differences as they pertain to numbers. Personally, I prefer the Chicago approach that allows for more flexibility if it will improve clarity.

    It’s been a while since I’ve flown (2 weeks) and I’ve had to use O’Hare’s terminal 2 for a United flight. At some point recently, check in there has become carry on only and you have to go to the United terminal #1 to get bags checked. Would have been really nice to have a sign in the terminal 2 train station setting this. What’s worse is, you used to walk between terminals without the train (which you have to take an escalator to go up and over the drop off road.) but, they’ve put barricades that forces you to take the train. At least you can do Security in terminal 1 and walk to terminal 2. Still a pain in the ass.

    One of the insurance companies I am a customer of sent me a letter advertising their life-insurance special: A discount for couples. FUCK YOU. Being lonely is bad enough without fucking marketing people reminding you of it.

    Dan, I hear you and I know it sucks to be alone when you feel you have plenty to give but unless you get out there and try and do something about it, the situation ain't never gonna change.

    Well that's your first issue. If you don't believe you have anything to offer how can you expect anyone else to believe you're worth investing their time and effort into?

    I was going to suggest other areas where improvement could be made but perhaps that's better for PMs.

    I just applied/got approved for a new credit card. Setting up my online account



    What the fuck? In this age, how do you have a maximum password length and limitation on special characters. The password I want is >20 characters and uses multiple special characters not in that approved list. You'd think a financial institution would be thrilled with me wanting to secure my account, but nah. I guess I'll select "Password1234" which despite the last line in that tooltip, is a valid password.

    This is something that seriously bugs me. I can sort of see the argument being made that all these creditors, banks and brokers are ancient institutions that are stuck in their ways, but that's a really weak argument and not an excuse. But then even Paypal, a sexy dot com era tech company, has silly limitations for passwords. Meanwhile, my cryptocurrency trade accounts have passwords as long as I want, 2FA, IP whitelisting, etc.

    Maybe all password-related positions are filled with the most backwards people possible? Across all companies? In a world wide trolling attempt? Or their password limitations come from the underlying programming language/database/system that cannot handle certain special characters, spaces or too many characters at all?

    It's probably no coincidence that even (or especially) large companies sometimes have to deal with massive data leaks due to incredibly ancient (or no) password encryption on their end. And the best part? Sometimes they try to hide these leaks instead of notifying everybody ASAP. Because, you know, most people are lazy as fuck and tend to use just one or two different passwords for ALL their accounts, so it would be sort of nice to know for them that they should maybe 1) change their password on all their accounts, and 2) maybe use a different password for each account.

    It's especially problematic in Canada, where they are just drinking a Big Gulp full of maple syrup.

    During a recent trip we parked uphill behind am RV. When we returned to the car we found the driver of the RV dumping some jerry cans full of water between his RV and our car. Since he was further up the hill than us, he created a small sea around our car which we had to walk through to get to the car. And by the way: he could have dumped the water to the left of the RV down the hillside. But I guess that would have been too much effort since he would have had to lift the cans. Better inconvenience the people behind you...

    People who can't be bothered having the simplest basic information before they make an enquiry. All we need to give someone an indication of price and availability for scrap collection for their car or van is a postal code and the vehicle registration number but the number of people who phone without even that basic information is simply staggering. I realise if you're driving something that's on its last legs you aren't going to be in the higher social strata when it comes to education or income but FFS!

    You wouldn't believe some of the fuckwit questions and responses I encounter in my job.

    On the plus side I rid the UK's roads daily of Vauxhalls, Peugeots and Citroens.

    This must be something relatively new. (Please remember that I'm OLD...)
    Before I became a 'numbers guy', I was an English major - and I've never heard of any rule like this. When I write something that's technical, I tend to use numeric characters; but when the topic is just general information, I normally use words to convey quantity.

    *Sigh* Now I have something else to watch for as I read!

    Even though you are german (and danes born before the end of the cold war was told germans are evil) I still like you
