I say twenty-thirteen because it's the easiest way to say it. Also, it makes sense to say twenty because we got sixteen-thirteen, seventeen-thirteen, eighteen-thirteen, nineteen-thirteen, and then twenty-thirteen. How does it make sense to jump form nineteen-thirteen to two-thousand thirteen? LOL, whatever floats your goat.

LOL

The only time i said the whole number was 2000-2009.

Twenty Thirteen. Saying two thousand and thirteen is too much, aint nobody got time for that.

Twenty thirteen rolls of the tongue a lot smoother than two thousand thirteen so I go with that...

I used to say "two thousand" until we got past the naughts and now I just say "twenty whatever".

Twenty-thirteen. The correct way. 1995 wasn't 'one thousand nine hundred and ninety-five'.

Two thousand and thirteen. I've actually gotten pretty used to calling it its actual number since we hit the 00's, as I still hear plenty of people calling it that.

I think though that once we get to 2101, many more will start to say it more like 'twenty one one' (or 'twenty one oh one', whichever).

Two-thousand should have been dropped in the pronunciation starting with 2010.
