10 digit dialing
Especially when your office, your home, and your cell phone are each in different area codes. Not only do you have to remember the 10-digit number, but you also have to remember which stupid area code you're even in!

What's worse, the fact that nearly every major metropolitan area has ten-digit-dialing, or the fact that the Twin Cities has ten-digit-dialing, or is it seven-digit-dialing, or, wait, which damn area code am I in?!?!?!

I know!! It sucks... my home number is 718-685-9756 but my work is 212-975-8558 and my cell is 917-896-3322!! And for some reason, I still get so many calls from total strangers!

You have to use the phone number service that telemarketers seem to have... they have EVERYONE's phone number!

10 digits? In the UK they go up to 11! And the London area code has changed from the centre-of-the-universe 01 to 071 or 081, then 0171 or 0181 and now 0207 or 0208.

Most big cities in the US have had 10 digit dialing for a long time, and people in DC have been doing it since the ice age. Congratulations Twin Cities, you're no longer a podunk town in the middle of nowhere--oh, wait-you still are, but now have a modern phone system...
Do the people that are whinig about this have cell phones? Because YOU DID THIS!
