English zero drives me crazy

Why it has to be so complicated?

  • When it's a decimal number like 0.1 you say: nought point one or zero point one

  • When it's in a telephone number, an hotel room or similar you use oh: room 203 it's two oh three

  • When it's a score like in football matches you say nil: Brasil-España 3-0 it's three - nil

  • And if it's a tenis match you say love: 15-0 it's fifteen-love
I have to remember that!
