We have street names, but we have a Japanese mentality. I`ve been laughing for years at my western friends trying to tell the pizza delivery guy directions by talking about street names.
"FFS! It`s street 17C, house 11!!!! FFS!!!""Pass me the phone""STFU! I`m explaining! HE doesn`t get it!""Pass... Hello, do you know the Manchester Clinic? Yup? Same street, house number 11. Thanks. You too."
As long as it can make sense when you need to use it, don`t argue.
Yeah, you take Street A, all the way until you reach a 7-11, thats North Joseph
The stupid way will, you pass block 1, then 3, then 14, you reach a 7-11, thats block 2.
If you come to my town and I tell you to go to North Joseph street will you know which way to go?
You have to abandon the all-about-me if-it`s-hard-I-don`t-want-to-do-it cultural mentality we have here in america. :-)
How is it efficient to try to find a certain house/shop if they`re numbered by order of date? Not to mention: how are you supposed to give directions to find a certain block if that person doesn`t know offhand which blocks are which? They`d have to be given landmarks which aren`t efficient at all since landmarks certainly change a lot faster than street names do, and what one person considers a landmark another might ignore entirely
Paying a doctor when you are well however, is a bad idea. Of course, people are well, more then they are sick. You`d be paying your doctor far more often.
