The '$4.4m a year' bug: Chipotle online orders swallowed by JavaScript credit-card form blunder

"Credit cards do frequently have four digit years"

a) Over 4 countries where I have been resident, 6 or 7 banks and 3 different credit card providers, I have yet to see a credit card, or indeed debit card, that uses 4 digit years

b) While I understand that with card validity going at most a few years it's not THAT much of an issue with understandibility, surely following Y2K all the underlying systems actually work with 4 digits.

I completely fail to see why ANY credit card should have 2-digit and not 4-digit expiry, let alone all of them
