I remember how much I hated math word problems when I was in school. Much like this joke, I use to argue with the problem more than just solve the darn thing! I would over analyze and restructure the sentence to the point that it was just silly. Now I'm able to just see them for what they are but I love this joke because the scenarios of word problems usually are pretty funny.
I hope the problems you face this week are easily solved and the ball keeps rolling forward!
