My parent's house numerals above the door are CCXXI and it always takes delivery people two or three go 'rounds before they figure it out

If Eric were taking requests, that's probably the number I would like to have

You think that an ambulance or police officer might notice the 219 on one side and the 223 on the other?

They've only had that above the door for 40 years and only teen pizza drivers seem to have trouble.

Maybe, but why take a chance on a possible life threatening situation? Seconds count in those situations, but hey, if they get a kick out of it then more power to them.

How many others have had to find it in the dark?

Finding the right house/number, at night, during a situation, is sometimes a lot harder than I would have thought.

No surprise there. Teen pizza drivers and McDonald's employees have trouble making change when your order comes to $7.25 and you give them $10.25.

I've actually had people hand back the quarter and say, "I don't need that."
