3, 13, 30
When we called British Telecom to arrange for our phone number to be the same as the previous tenants' number (a request of the landlord), they misheard our street address house number as
13 instead of 30.
So we were working on the wrong number phone number for a week or so.
Then when the French post office typed in our address forwarding request, they mistyped
3 instead of 30.
So the kind gentleman on our street at #3 received two pieces of mail for us, but didn't know who they belonged to, since we hadn't met him yet. He tried to deliver them to the folks at #13 (without success, of course, as those neighbors hadn't met us yet either)!
Hopefully this is mostly sorted out now...apparently a Belgian family will be moving into #13 (which, ironically, is right across the street from us at #30!) later this summer, and they have three children, who will be attending the same school as our kids!
