The "N" stands for NUMBER, there's no reason to say number again, you're wasting your breathe! And I'm wasting your time.

Just had to rant. Thank you. Now I'm going to go watch the OWN Network.
god i feel the same way. I can't believe dye made that mistake. but saying I have a DAM does sound weird.
