The same goes for area codes. It seems like they change once a decade or so.
The ZIP Plus Four is cool, but it is kind of like the metric system, nobody uses it.

People where I live now(509) refuse to use area codes when giving out phone numbers even though they live very close to a different area code(208). It seems pretty funny to me coming from a multiple area code area.

Mine was 92677 and now it's 92629.

It's a plot to drive us all crazy and seize our houses when we can't find them anymore!

That being the case, it worked. Ya done good! Something for which I'll always be grateful. Betcha our zip code and area code will stay the same at least until we assume room temperature. Makes them less susceptible to loss during senior moments dontcha know.

This happened in 1996.
