I CAN'T STAND IT

I thought it was settled, that the proper way to say the year was twenty-ten but apparently the author of an article I read this week must have thought otherwise. He wrote the year as 2k10!? Did he think this was cute or funny or easier to type? I just think he's a jerk.

  1. Yeah, I think just simply 2010 (twenty-ten) is...well...simpler and therefore better. :)

  2. 2010 is as easy to write as 2k10....and vice versa.

  3. Why not MMX? Or is it too difficult to read Roman [latin] numerals. ;)

  4. I'd have to side with you and go with "jerk". It sounds like just the thing some pretentious "queen" (of any sexual persuasion) would use to show that they are "cook" or "with it". While there are some people who say two thousand ten, but then again, I used to say twenty-oh-three from time to time, as we did in nineteen-oh-four, for example. I think the 2K-10 looks a lot more like text-speak, so may appear more cool, but with no savings in letters, it's not very clever.
    I'm just sayin...

  5. How about it's 10. We already know what century it is. Except the Republicans, they think it's the 1800's. Oh well.

  6. I'd say he's a "Pretentious Asshat."

    BTW - my Capcha word is "revag." I s that like when a girl gets that surgery to restore her hymen? Ew!

  7. He's being a jerk. Bet he says 2k11 next year.

  8. I just say two-thousand ten. But twenty-ten works too. At least we're into the tens. They pronounce a lot easier than twenty-one or twenty-o-nine.

  9. 2K10 just seems bit pretentious to me.
