date formats frustrate me. sometimes is year first, sometimes its month first (rarely if ever do i find the year in the middle). yesterday i wanted to make a peanut butter jelly sandwich and i looked at the jelly jar to double check if it was expired.
the date said "08 08 09"
how are you supposed to know whether that's aug 8, 2009 or aug 9, 2008?!
i ate the jelly anyway.
