The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

I Knew I Was Bad At Numbers But I Didn’t Realise I Was This Bad …

I’m back.

I appreciate this news will fill you with dread so to make you feel a bit better, I’ll give you some ammo to take the piss out of me. Yes I know you don’t normally need any of that, so consider it an act of errrrrm, love.

As I have said many times, I am rubbish at maths.

I once got 2% in Mrs Kirk’s maths class.

But I did think I had got better over the years until something happened a couple of weeks ago that showed me I was kidding myself.


Yep, what you see is a rather excessive electricity bill because someone – errrrrm, me – got the numbers he submitted, wrong.

Better yet, my first thought was it was the fault of the air conditioning unit we had just bought.

Then when I came to my senses and realized even that couldn’t contribute that much of an increase to the electricity usage, the electricity company didn’t automatically realise it was an innocent mistake by a stupid customer, and said they would need to launch an investigation.


Suddenly your week feels a lot better now doesn’t it.

then captured it in one single fucking word.
couldnt have said it better myself.

Are you selling the house to pay for the electricity?

Comment by George

he would sell some other fuckers house before he has to pay for anything.

Comment by andy@cynic

I’m shocked you didn’t get your butler to do it.

Comment by John

He would only have a wifi butler.

Comment by George

That means my wifi Aibo’s are my butlers and they don’t do as they’re told either.

Comment by Rob

And they say robots aren’t intelligent.
Sorry Robert.

Comment by George

Fortunately your brain is much better at strategy than maths.
