One of the less-obvious codes that I've run across is the order to put
the month-date-year in for your birthdate. I was born on Oct. 4, 1959
(10-4-59 here in the US). It only took me two tries to fill out the
custom's card when a friend and I visited Europe. How were =we= supposed
to know that the typical order on those forms is date-month-year? Aren't
"international" forms fun?
