That is possible!
You know, I don't normally think about switching numbers like that anymore because I haven't had to do math in a very long time (besides my LD tests). But I was just sending out our save the date cards for our wedding and some of them were sent back because I put the wrong address on them (I switched two numbers etc...), so this is possible that I will memorize the wrong number?
I even have problems when I have the numbers written down though :S Sometimes I will miss the number entirely because they only have numbers for every five lines (I think?), so you have to count the lines. Also, for some reason, I have never been able to remember the process. I am sure that this is just from lack of practice, but I just get so frustrated with the darn things! LOL! I know it shouldn't be that hard, but for some reason it is...
As for phone numbers, I have to be really careful! I normally put them right into my cell phone and then recite the numbers back to the person who gave it to me. I still manage to mess up sometimes though :S Stupid numbers :P LOL!
