Bearings in descriptions

Some time back, an LS I worked with got me writing my bearings on descriptions all the way out IE: North 30 degrees 15 minutes 32 seconds East rather than with the symbols for degrees, minutes, and seconds. Rationale for this was that mostly "lay-people" would be reading it and it would remove any misconception of intent. I have run into people that thought it read "North 30 degrees 15 feet and 32 inches (really!) Unfortunately, it makes for one heck of a long description! Anybody else do this or am I just an anomaly? Flame on!

Thanks
