Cheques

One of my responsibilities this week (my direct boss being in Florida and all) is to write the company checks (but not sign them. boo hoo). This means I will be writing them out manually. I'm having difficulty if I should write them out in the manner I do, or in a more traditional fashion.

The differences between me and everybody else:

1. I write AD on all my christian calendar dates, or at least those that include the year, which would mean all the ones on these checks.

2. I write all my dollar amounts (the words, not the numerals) as mixed fractions. Thus, $150.50 would be One-hundred Fifty and a half dollars. The idea for this originated from the fact that I like writing out as much as I can, and that every check I've ever seen already has the word "dollars" printed on it, so it would be silly to write so it says "One-hundred fifty dollars and fifty cents dollars."
