That's exactly how we give dates in Dutch, so I guess that's why I'm used to DD-MM-YY.pseudoidiot wrote:I always hear people say they think the US system is illogical, but I don't get it. When I verbally give someone a date, I say <month> <day>, <year>. So, writing/typing it out as MM-DD-YYYY makes perfect sense to me.
'Course, if people elsewhere give a date by saying <day> of <month>, <year>, that makes a little more sense. But that doesn't make one format illogical. Just different.
I never made that connection, though... it does make sense that way.
