At least one (1) other shares my opinion

From Lowering the Bar:

To me, the great thing about this email is not that a lawyer got furious over somebody failing to dish up yogurt and cereal. It’s that even in the grip of fury, he still wrote “two (2) weeks.” Why do people do this? Maybe it made sense when things were written in longhand, but now that we have email and printers and whatnot there is generally not much controversy over what “two” is supposed to mean. If you haven’t picked up this habit yet, don’t.

I love the notion that there is not controversy over what a number is supposed to mean. Genius. I’m glad someone else feels the way I do about this obnoxious habit.
