This happens far more often than most people realize
So there I was, filling out a check in the grocery store. The amount was $16.48. The cashier turned to me and said, in a slightly expectant tone, "Sixteen forty-eight."
As God is my witness, it was all I could do to stop myself from snapping my head up and yelling out, "PEACE OF WESTPHALIA!" as quick as I could.
My fellow history buffs will understand, but nobody else will.
