I’m pretty aggressive, now, in my use of YYYY-MM-DD notation even in handwritten dates. Anything less is too ambiguous.

If the local library switched to ISO-8601, it would help reduce my anxiety around overdue books.
When I encounter a folder of files with names of mm-dd-yyyy.* file names I get all cringey.
Yup. I use ISO-8601 when I sign and date any legal documents—anything else seems dangerously open to legal misinterpretation.
You can explain it to me when you’ve finished :-)
I thought everything in the U.K. Was dated DD-MM-YYYY
Hmm, it’s unlikely you’d be required to return the book 9 days before you borrowed it, unless the Brighton Hove Library is on Gallifrey…
