I wonder how many people will start bringing their ID to purchase groceries now
I have been forced to go out to my car and get my ID numerous times at the grocery store.... yes, the effing grocery store to make purchases. That is the truth. Try buying Pedialyte when your child is sick. How about Sudafed and many other products sold at the grocery store.... they make you show an ID.
Reasons to chose M - M is the Metric prefix for mega, which is one million. M is also the first letter in million, which makes it easy and consistent with the commonly used abbreviation B for billion. Note that if you use B for billion using the "M makes sense due to metric prefixes" argument loses some of its luster since the metric prefix for billion would be G, which is not ever used to denote a billion in finance (the question being tagged finance).
Reasons to choose MM - MM is a designation that is derived from the Roman numeral M for one thousand meaning "one thousand one thousands" or one million. The best argument for the use of MM for million is that it cannot mean anything else (unlike M, which could stand for one thousand). The second best argument for using MM is that it is typically what you would see more financially adept people use, like their own code, which is a silly reason, but keep reading and it'll get even sillier in finance abbreviations.
