We refer to our branch offices by their location. So, for example, we have the Springfield office, the Fells Point office, the Georgetown office. There are four Ocean City branches, and since they are all on Coastal Highway, we refer to them by their cross streets. We end up writing them this way:

Ocean City/ 52nd St
Ocean City/ 57th St
Ocean City/ 104th St
Ocean City/ 120th St

Which would be fine, except Excel hates that. Every time I make a spreadsheet and try to alphabetize by office, Excel insists on ordering them this way:

Ocean City/ 104th St
Ocean City/ 120th St
Ocean City/ 52nd St
Ocean City/ 57th St

This bugs the hell out of me.


Just felt like bringing that up. You can go back to something more interesting now.
