I was wondering about something, not particularly significant but it did pique my curiosity recently, well at least enough to want to bring it up here and ask others for feedback.
This may be just an observational malfunction on my part or perhaps others have noticed this for themselves (of which I hope is the case as I want to hear from you).
Since the year two thousand, I have been calling the years two thousand and one, two thousand and two, two thousand and three and so on through the decade. I didn’t notice a problem with it and I was pretty sure others were calling the years by the same format I was.
Suddenly this year it seems most people are calling the year twenty twelve instead of two thousand and twelve and it has just caught me off guard. I wonder if anyone else has found this to be true or if this is my own private observation.
Of course you could be thinking so what, does it really matter, and why in the world are you wasting your breath on such a trivial matter?
Just wondering if any one else had thoughts on this?
