YANBU! My brother has a whole page of crossed out bits to himself what with university then flat shares and now he lives abroad.

Sparklingbrook Mon 17-Mar-14 10:13:47

OMG akachan can you tear the page out? That would give me the rage.

EatShitDerek Mon 17-Mar-14 10:14:08

You have an address book?! grin

Sparklingbrook Mon 17-Mar-14 10:15:15

shock Where do you keep your addresses Eat? Are you all modern? <suspicious>

Use a pencil for addresses and phone numbers, OP.

People have complained to me before that I take all their pages X due to constant moving... I think they gave up in the end! email/facebook is the way forward for me

I don't need to know any addresses apart from dads and grandparents in Ireland. My grandad is modern so sent me business card type thing with their details. These are on the fridge.

Pencil is your friend here.

I am a constant source of irritation to my nearest and dearest for this very reason.

nice shiny new address book, nice shiny new pencil and nice shiney new eraser grin

I think I need a new adddress book, and a pencil.

I had a look at some yesterday. There's not enough room for the 'address' in most of them. <humph>

EatShitDerek Mon 17-Mar-14 10:21:21

Even my nanna has her addresses typed up in a document on the computer

Sparklingbrook Mon 17-Mar-14 10:21:26

Ooh yes an eraser Step. A clean one, not one with dirt on that live in DS's pencil cases....

My parents have 15 addresses for me in their address book - I don't think they have sent me anything through the post since address number 5!

specialsubject Mon 17-Mar-14 10:22:41

address book here too. Doesn't need backing up or batteries. Great idea!

CoffeeTea103 Mon 17-Mar-14 10:22:45

Address book? You do know you can store and edit addresses on your phone, PC etcsmile

A real address book? Like, not on a spread sheet??

Wow!

I think my Grandma would win this one - she needed a new address book after she had to cross out so many people when they died!! Talk about inconsiderate of them.

SooticaTheWitchesCat Mon 17-Mar-14 10:23:26

It is really annoying when people split up and you have to cross one name out too wink

You need a loose leaf mini Filofax address book.

Then you can have tidy pages, and get some really cute dividers, a nice mini pen, and have pockets for stamps.

Tis very satisfying.

I know I am an old gimmer, but I do love an address book. I can open it and write the address quicker than switching the laptop on.

Sparklingbrook Mon 17-Mar-14 10:27:01

Sootica how do you choose which one to cross out? sad

TillyTellTale Mon 17-Mar-14 10:27:09

Computers break. And costs hundreds of pounds in new parts to be fixed. <bitter>

I like my address book!

Sparklingbrook Mon 17-Mar-14 10:29:18

silver I like the sound of that. A pocket for stamps you say?
