Whilst on my computer, in England, I started chatting with a lovely girl from America. Things started to look good, so we decided, through private messages, to meet up.
The date was set, 6/7/05. We were to meet on neutral ground, so we decided on Madrid.
I got there, on the day we had arranged, only to find she had already come and left, nearly a month earlier. We both got there at the day we arranged, so how did we miss each other by a month?
AnswerWe both used a different format for writing the date.
U.K. use date/month/year
U.S. use month/date/year
So I got there on 6th July, whereas my date was there 7th June.
