Quantifying confusion

When a European goes to USA or when a US citizen goes to Europe, he or she may be confused by the different way a date is written down. Specifically, the day “7th November 2011”  is written in USA as 11/7/2011 which is the day of 11th of July in Europe. Well, imagine that you are European who comes to US for a year. How many days do you expect to find yourself in confusion when you wake up and see your calendar?
