Over the phone
Him: How was your meeting?
Me: It was good, I found street parking.
Him: That’s good.
Me: Yeah, it went much faster than I thought, which was good, but I overfed the meter because I thought it would take longer. The sign said maximum parking 1 hour so I put 4 quarters in…
Me: No, 5 quarters in…
Me: How does that make sense? If every quarter is 15 minutes, then 15 and 15 is 30 and then another 15 is 45…
Him: I’m here, I’m just letting you do the math in your head.
Me: Did I put in 8 quarters? Because how is it possible that a quarter is 25 cents each and then 4 quarters make a dollar, but then 4 quarters at the meter make an hour?
Him: Are you still doing the math?
Me: Yeah…but I don’t understand how…
Me: NO! NO! NO! NEVER MIND I UNDERSTAND!
Me: Alright already. I figured it out.
Him: Did you?
Me: Yeah, a dollar is 100 and an hour is 60. DUH!
Me: Gotta go!
