Has anyone had to deal with someone shortening the year? Is this common? I was in a depo the other day and the witness kept referring to the years as Aug 208 or Jan 209 versus 2008 or 2009. They were talking a lot about contract dates and things. The attorney would say the full actual date, but when the witness would respond he shortened the year, so it looks like I missed a "0" in some of my years. My proofreader said it's not common and I should 'sic' it. Has anyone else ran into this? No one in the depo seemed to think it was odd, so I thought maybe it was common.
