    I just let my wife handle it all. Not heard of this one note per packet thing though.

    20x2 is very very common.

    It's ok to work on the 4th/x4th floor, too. Maybe it's less desireable, but it's ok. Living there, not so much.

    I got a great flat on the 4th floor in Tokyo with a great floorplan, view, price. It would not have been available I think if it weren't on the 4th floor so I was glad to get it. Coworker got married in Japan on an unlucky day for half price (literally) of a lucky day. Sometimes, it's good to ignore the number things...

    Amazon got registered as a business on unlucky day according to lunar calendar. Despite that Jeff Bezos has become the richest man in the world.
