Math Makes A Big Difference

| Working | May 14, 2012

(It’s a particularly busy day at the movie theater where I work. My coworker and I have gone on break. We have a very strict supervisor this day who gets angry if we exceed our 15 minute break by even half a minute.)

Coworker: “Ugh! When do when have to be back?”

Me: *looking at the clock* “Well, we got in here at 4:36, so we don’t have to be back until 4:51.”

Coworker: *stares incredulously* “Are you, like, REALLY good at math?!”

(Not surprisingly, she got fired a few weeks later for consistently being late for work.)
