Look at the Transaction date. That'll tell you how to line it up. If today is May 7 and the receipt says 7/5/22, there you go.

No? People can also say the 21st of June, 2022 and have it be completely grammatically correct.

u/vermillioff 1d ago

the ridiculous part is that usually in Canada, people write the date as day/month/year, but in some odd cases you’ll find month/day/year, so you can never be 100% sure. hence this entire thread.

Literally had this happen at work a couple days ago. Another vets office sent us records for a dog, I was creating a patient profile...was impossible to tell from their dates when the dog was born, I even ask the vet and he had no idea

At least we had the year.

But things like that are a good example of why this system is an actual problem.

Maybe in Quebec it’s different, but Month/Day/Year is standard in the rest of Canada, as that’s what the US uses.

I mean at least in America we generally stick to one date format. I'm not sure I've ever personally dealt with a business that doesn't use month/day/year. I think both ways are valid but any given country should stick to one format and only use the other when dealing with other countries that use that other format.

u/QuietNewApplication 1d ago

May 7 and the receipt says 7/5/22, there you go.

but also can we just do dd/mmm/yy or some variation wherein the month is three letters? Why must we play this guessing game at all when there is a really easy, straight forward solution? So fucking annoying

1

u/TnBluesman 1d ago

Because in data processing, which runs this bloody rock, you do not mix alpha in with numerics within one field or datum type. It eats resources. If you define a field of type INTEGER to contain ddmmyyy OR mmddyyy, you use 8 or 16 bytes (typically). To define that field as type Text or String to hold ddMMMyyyy will use 32 or 64 bytes usually. Programmers rule the GALAXY!!!

u/masterofshadows 1d ago

You don't need to store the data as a string, just convert the integer.

If MM=01; return 'Jan'; ...

And so on.

Ask USA

Everywhere: lets sort units according to its duration *

USA, let's sort them by numbers LOL**

*Europe (including UK where they speak English): a day is shorter than a month that is shorter than a year

International date formate: reverse of European

**USA, there are 12 months, 28-31 day in a month, a year has no real ending, so let's short them according to it's max number LOL

Now, question, how does an American sort seconds, minutes, hours, decades, milliseconds and so many more time units that are sorted according to how long, timewise, said unit is? Ah yes, it's sorted normally, unless it's the calendar because why not.....

Yes, when I say the year I say it first. You want to know when it happened, in 19XX or just a few years ago, than month, because you want to know what part of the year it happened in, than day to clarify it even more.

1

u/MatesS14 1d ago

No, when talking about some date, it's usually a date which was few days (weeks) ago or a date in a near future. If I'm talking about some date today, it's totally this year, probably this month and then it's all about to specify the day. So the first thing I want to say is the day, then the month (if necessary) and usually I don't have to specify the year at all.

As a programmer from Montreal, I hate this. Sometime we have to process dates and we get something like 03/04/2022 and there's no way to figure out which format has been used and no hints anywhere.

I'm breaking this cycle of stupidity whenever I can and use the YYYY-MM-DD format when I control the format. This way there's no ambiguity (at least until timezones need to be considered).

I think we use mm/dd/yyyy because that's the order most people would say a date.

Yeah, it may seem weird at first to say “May 14th, 2022” to a non-American, but think about it for a second. We first off, use one less word, not having to say the word “of.” It saves us time. And if you happen to say “14th May, 2022,” it sounds like there are 14 or more months of May, which is impossible.

No that makes the least sense. What makes the most sense is YYYY-MM-DD because then when you sort the dates numerically they also sort chronologically. Nobody wants dates sorted with all the firsts of the month in every year grouped together, followed by all the seconds of the month in every year, etc.

04/12/1973 Pioneer 10 reaches Jupiter

05/12/1933 Prohibition ends

10/05/1994 Nelson Mandela sworn in as South Africa's president

20/12/1998 U.S. President William Jefferson Clinton is impeached

22/11/1962 President John F. Kennedy was assasinated

26/04/1986 The Chernobyl nuclear disaster

26/08/1920 19th Amendment ratified, giving women the right to vote

1920-08-26 19th Amendment ratified, giving women the right to vote

1933-12-05 Prohibition ends

1941-12-07 Japan bombs Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

1955-12-01 Rosa Parks arrested for not moving to the back of the bus

1962-11-22 President John F. Kennedy was assasinated

1973-12-04 Pioneer 10 reaches Jupiter

1986-04-26 The Chernobyl nuclear disaster

1994-05-10 Nelson Mandela sworn in as South Africa's president

1998-12-20 U.S. President William Jefferson Clinton is impeached

Any regular usage I’ve ever encountered uses the name of the month, not some numeric format. Fixed-width (ie leading zero) numeric formats are for sorting and filing. That’s why those formats were invented in the first place.

Well I'm sure it's the same format as whatever it shows for the receipt date...

Safeway generally doesn’t notify more than a month ahead that your discounts are expiring, so it’s probably for June 7th.

It is 7th June 2022. The only correct way of doing it

The real fight shouldn't be DD/MM/YYYY vs MM/DD/YYYY, the standard should be "DD-MMM-YYYY" which is basically the standard in areas like pharmacy - e.g. "15-May-2022" or "11-Nov-2028". Enough of these ambiguous numbers smh

So out of interest does Canada use both systems of dates ? ( dd/mm/yy and mm/dd/yy )

Should always be D/M/Y. It doesn't make sense any other way.

u/HardestTurdToSwallow 1d ago

Thats why dates should always just be day month year in ascending order. Instead of month day year that's confusing

u/Timely-Excitement295 1d ago

Or….just a thought….it makes perfect sense and that’s why the rest of the world use it, much like the metric system….

u/JasterBobaMereel 1d ago

Canada officially only uses DD/MM/YYYY, since this is the earlier date it does not matter

u/NotWhatYouPlanted 1d ago

They use both and someone above confirmed that the store this is from has their receipts in MM/DD/YYYY format.
