I was reminded today that life as we know it here in NYC is about to irrevocably change. Changes of monumental proportion were put into effect last year and now they are finally coming to fruition. Yes, I'm talking about ten-digit dialing in Manhattan.
Starting tomorrow, it doesn't matter which area code you are in, you must dial the full ten digits of the person's telephone number in order to reach them -- even if you are in the same area code. What really sucks is that I have my memory dial on my phone full of numbers and I don't remember how to change them to reflect this new requirement.
Maybe I'll just buy a new phone and go from there. That seems like the smart thing to do.
