So I've always wondered, if you are writing down a number being dictated 
(slowly) by someone else, like 234, do you write the 2, then leave space 
and write the 4, then go back and fill in with 3? Or do you push the 4 
onto the stack until the 3 arrives, and write 34 at once.

If the latter, does this imply that Germans have a harder time with tail
