Makes me think about today. Everything in the mailbox went into the recycling bin and never made it to the office. We're expecting a final payment of $16K from a customer. I made sure it wasn't in the stack!

 The simple answer is that Kilogram means Thousand. K is for kilogram, so k is for 1000.  Grand is slang, K is an actual form of measure.

"kilo" or "k" (small k) = 1000

kilogram (kg) = 1000 grams (weight), kilometers (km) = 1000 meters (length), etc...

No, we can still use kilodollars.  In fact, you can learn to take advantage of it...

Honey, I'm thinking about buying a new pickup truck.  Well how much is that *$#@& thing going to cost?  Don't worry honey, it's only 25 kdollars.

See, it doesn't sound that bad now!   :D
