The way Americans write the date (Rant)

by Aston Villa Robbie, Birmingham, Monday, November 13, 2017, 19:01 (5 days ago)

In the UK we would put

D M Y
13/11/2017

which is logical because a day comes before a month and a month comes before a year


but Americans would write

M D Y
11/13/2017


which is just weird :-crazy


and it's even worse when you read an article by someone who's origin you don't know, that has a date where the first number could be a day or the month, not so bad if it's 11/25/2017 because you know there is not 25 months but still wrong.
