Yes but informally, they could write it as [digit] before the dollar sign. Leave the standard to the serious business. I think it's easy to write as you speak "I buy a car"  "2 dollars". you don't say "dollars 2" right?
Meh. Keeping track of two standards seems more of a pain to me. Maybe that's just me.

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post at SmileySmile.

Big change: liking ear muffs since today.

You mean to say with that cryptic post that it doesn't apply to less value - cents & dimes etc.?
You talking to me? Or Bubs?

Never mind. I've realized I have no interest in debating about the placement of the dollar sign.


I was addressing "Bubs".

You can still call me Mr. Waves. I enjoyed that.

You are blunt. Which can be good.

I haven't really noticed that.  But I have noticed guys wearing flip flops everywhere, all the time.  Not just at the beach. 

I think I'd rather see a woman in socks and heels that see men's feet all the time.

So many reactions. I agree. But, high heels can really be uncomfortable. But then why are they wearing high heels? Because it's a social expectation and because they're being judged for their looks which high heels improve. But then the socks ruin the look. Back to square one.

If you posted you must explain yourself what you meant. I don't see anything bad in asking. cents are written normally - 45c? What could I get from the post like "$10.45c"?
My guess is that I pooped Bubs out.

Unfortunately, I rarely ever explain myself.

I could definitely see how this sentence could be misunderstood by somebody who doesn't understand English slang.

I don't understand 'manure' slang. What did you do with the poster in question?

RR,

The slang where one is "pooped out" and just another way of saying "tired."

People getting creeped out for very little & trivial things. Like clowns & kings (hello, KDS & Emily Hello ). It's kind of annoying & funny at the same time.

My pet peeve is when people who don't fully understand things decide to be insulting.

I just don't get what's creepy/disturbing about clowns & some cartoon king picture. If you say I don't "fully understand", explain.

Like it was pointed out, it's the frozen faces and painted on smiles. 

I'm not really freaked out by clowns or The Burger King myself, but I can at least respect that other people do.  I have friends who have real phobias of clowns. 

Just because you don't understand it is no reason to put down somebody (ie. Emily) who does.

Big deal, frozen faces. Every picture has frozen face & painted on smile, no? That's laughable to be creeped out by a picture of king ONLY BECAUSE he has weird/"total tool" kind of smile. Ha!

This is thread "Pet peeves". Look at the posts here - everybody listed sth. they find EXTREMELY annoying. So did I. If Emily was offended, if at all, she can say that herself. You can't know if she was & say on her behalf.

I was only using her as an immediate example.  But the fact that clowns are used in horror movies and TV shows so often just shows that fear of clowns is a legit fear.
