I also get confused every time we write dates in 3/4/09 format, as we french-speaking assholes also write dates as DD/MM/YYYY, from the smaller unit of measurement to the biggest. i thought they were trying to get that universally (globally?) recognized to facilitate communication and computer programming...

I'm just pulling your leg. :p

It makes sense to me, in English we say "11th of January, 1998", which is in essence a shorthand for "The eleventh day of the month of January, in the year 1998". In Welsh it'd be "11fed o Ionawr, 1998", which is the same order, even though Welsh grammar is the reverse of English in some cases.

I've taken to writing my dates in military format - i.e. 15 Dec. 2009. Of course, I also cross my sevens, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

I've taken to avoiding writing out the date at all. Everywhere I go it's different. Family court does it one way, the power company does it another, work does it yet another way...

Fuck it, the date is Tuesday.

Yeah Cymro, I kinda figured you was screwing with me, but I do admit you had me studder-stuck for a second.

I watch a court show Judge Joe Brown, commonly speaking, when abbrevating 2009, most people say 'oh-nine', but Judge Joe likes to say 'aut-nine'. I know it's the "proper" way of saying it, but it's strange to hear it.

Sometimes it is a little confussing when dealing with writting out dates, especially on job applications. Some places want a MM/DD/YY format, other a MM/DD/YYYY and still other want a DD/MM/YY or DD/MM/YYYY, and then there are those who don't give a shit.

The other thing that trips me up a lot is that it's common practice to omit the '0' in the months of 1-9, so if I were to correctly type my b'day, it should be 07/17/71 or 17/07/1971. I've had more than once fill out an app on line and get a little warning cue because, out of habbit, I didn't put that little zerro in front of the 7.
(and yes, when speaking, I do say "zerro" instead of "oh", which saying 'oh' is more common)
