can you imagine how fucking relieved the french must have been when we reached the year 2000?
they went from having to say “mille neuf cents quatre-vingt-dix-neuf” to just having to say “deux mille” to say the year
and that is why I did not understand the year of French I endured. Their counting makes no sense to me.
One thousand, nine-hundreds, four-twenties, and nineteen .
