Long numbers that are displayed without spaces or dashes.

I just had to input my IMEI and EID into a new carrier's website. Why can't phones put a couple of spaces in these super-long numbers? Or when I need to set up a new bill pay with my bank, when it asks me to confirm the account number, why not add some dashes between each 4 digits?

Is it because dashes and other symbols will mess up their data field/base?

Dunno. But I'd hope there's a way to display the numbers with dashes even if they're not stored that way.

I was able to solve such issues 35 years ago in dBase or in any programming language or event spreadsheet functions.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

How about coat racks without hangers?

How often do hangers get lost or stolen because they weren't attached?

Firstly, if I’m a guest at someone who’s shul has this silliness and it doesn’t bother him enough to daven somewhere else, it won’t help me.
Secondly, many times it’s my only option.

Are they the plastic ones. Or Nice sturdy ones. Ime, when they are nice solid hangers, the seem to 'hang' around longer. A Shul I Daven in has very nice solid wood hangers. They've been there for quite a while already BH without depleting.
