    Filling out forms, I never knew what they were for. Please enlighten :D

    Would it be for an apartment number?

    I think it's for apartment numbers, Routes,etc.

    like
    example:
    KT
    care of Alan Greenspan
    1234 Fake street
    Beverly hills, CA 90210

    ...right? I'm pretty sure that' sit.

    So it's:

    SamIchi
    123 Fake St
    Apt. 33
    New York, NY 00000

    Like that? If so, I gotta go change my resume info...

    KT's right. We've had the apartment number cut off before when we've tried to put it on the same line as the rest of the street address (stupid UPS).

    Well at the hospital the second line is normally used for POBOX because apartment numbers fit on the first line

    Yes that is right. Although, as eva01 has said, you can also usually put the apartment info on the first line. :)

    All you ever actually need to identify an address is your house number/name and your post code. Everything else is superfluous.

    Just for the fun of it, here's the proper address formats. (I really hate those retarded shippers that can't understand a highway contract address, even though it's one of just a few standard USPS formats.)

    BTW, I'll often use the second address line for my milepost, like so...

    Arr E. Heech
    HC 39 Box 275E
    Mile 8 Somelong Hwy
    Some City SS 93845
