Scene: I am at work at 7:00am. My boss is on the way into the office for a meeting. He has called to dictate some notes for me to type up for his meeting.
Jen: Okay, I think I've got all of it. Is that it?
Boss: Well, I want to put some figures in there.
Boss: Put the revenue percentages in there.
Jen: Which are....
Boss: Um.... go ahead and do..... if revenue increases from $120,000 to $140,000, what percentage of increase is that?
Jen: ........... seriously?
Boss: Yes.... what is the percentage of increase from 120,000 to 140,000?
Jen: Okay, yeah, I don't know how to do that and I never claimed that I could.
Boss: (laughing) You had to have learned that in school. And you were there more recently than me.
Jen: Yes I did but I failed college algebra 4 times and I specifically chose a job that required no math. You knew when you hired me that I was mathematically challenged. You can't hold this against me.
Boss: Okay. Good point.
