I’ve spent the last hour of today arguing with co-workers about a number (you know you are all jealous of my crazy-fabulous life).
My side of the argument is 25 plus 11 plus 5 does not equal 40.
The opposing side of the argument is that a super high up person looked at a sheet full of numbers (of which this was a microscopic portion of) and said she was okay with it. I’m sorry, how does math not automatically not trump EVERYTHING else?
This has been a PSA to aspiring accountants everywhere: this too could be your life.
