    I’d say the twenty-tens.

    Why would people say “oughts”? I don’t get it.

    If I’m saying what year we are in, it’ll either be:

    Twenty thirteen, or if i’m feeling fancy: Two thousand thirteen.

    What is “oughts”???

    I usually just say the year I mean, like two thousand thirteen, or twenty thirteen if I’m being more casual. If I was talking about a group of years I guess I’d say the twenty-tens.

    i call 2000-2009, “the two thousands” or “the early two thousands”

    i think i’ll probably call this decade (2010-2019) “the teens”??


    edit: i voted for the burger and fries… you gotta time on that order? =)

    I call 2000-2009 the “zeros.” As long as it’s in context everyone catches on.

    I feel like it probably should be the twenty-tens. BUT, I always feel weird saying twenty, since I’ve been saying “two thousand ___” for so long, so I normally refer to this time period as the two thousand tens. 

    Not the “two thousand AND tens” though because I was always taught in math that “and” refers to a decimal, so that one bothers me. I’m not sure if that’s logical though!

    In NZ a lot of people have been calling then the “naughties” (noughties) and the “teens”.
