I have always found the convention MMDDYY to be more confusing.
Me too. I never understood the reasoning behind it (I'm sure there's a good reason, though), but to me the order should always be in some kind of scale, from the most precise to the least, or vice-versa. MMDDYY just seems to be muddled, but I know a lot of people use it so there's a reason in itself.
