East vs. west
Bleeker: The Rechargeable Dog by Jonathan Mahood. I'm guessing that this sort of problem isn't all that common since even though street names duplicate east & west, north & south, street addresses don't so much. And this has got to be a more common problem in western U.S. cities which are more likely to have grid layouts. May not ever be a problem in Europe. And in Asia the entire addressing concept is different (as seen in this short, fascinating presentation).
