So amongst the ID information that I take down when I check in a guest is their birthdate. I'll type it in MMDDYY format and the computer automatically changes it to MM/DD/YYYY format.
Today, though, when it changed it to MM/DD/YYYY it did something I'd never seen it do before. I was checking in a very sweet, and dare I say even adorable, nonagenarian. I typed in MMDD20, hit TAB, glanced at the screen....and had to laugh.
The computer translated his birthday as MM/DD/2020. That's the first time I've put in a birthday so old that the computer thought it was for the next century.
I actually didn't glimpse it until as I was opening the Invoicing screen, so I checked him in before I went back to fix the date. Yes, the computer let me check in a guest...who according to the entered birthdate wasn't even born yet!
