Remember To Write 2013 In Dates

Remember To Write 2013 In Dates

For the next few weeks, people will be writing (or typing) 2012 in dates before realising their error and writing 2013 instead. Here’s a simple trick to help you avoid the mistake: remember that this year has no repeated digits in it.

2013 is the first year that has been true since 1987. It will also be the case for every year until 2020, so this is the only year this trick will really work for quite some time, but it’s worth using if you find yourself messing up the date a lot.
