Math is Still Hard

September 25, 2001

I may have to start checking the math on my receipts when I get my car worked on. The mechanics are real good at what they do, but simple arithmetic seems to be a little beyond them. I took my car in on August 31st, when it had 74,667 miles on it. When they were done, they put one of those little plastic stickers on the windshield to remind me when to come in again. Mileage: 77,667 (that's OK). Date: 11/31/2001 (oops).
