Two people were looking up directions on an online map via a smartphone. One read out to the other "it's a 500ft walk from the station". The other replied "Feet? That's a bit archaic, isn't it? How far's that? Why don't they use standard units?"
This pleases me. The country was just starting the transition to metric units when I was born, so I've grown up with metric units. I embraced metric units wholeheartedly, but many of my generation (probably in part due to parental influence) didn't. But time passes, and now it seems that imperial units are seen as archaic. About time too.
