Ive just visited my local 24hr garage, (it was 4.30am) and a chap there had just bought a bag of discounted food items. He was clearly a bit wacky but thats par for the course here. While i was being served he came back and said he spent £2.66 and was given £2.14 in change from £5 note (he still had the change in his hand and showed me). Clearly he was short 20p, but for whatever reason afflicts his calculative abilities he couldnt grasp it was only 20p. To me and my Indian friend serving him he insisted it was a variety of values. He said im short 40p, then to Raz he said thats 50p short mate, then back to me saying, thats 50p innit mate? In less than 2 minutes he calculated he had been short changed 30p, 44p 50p and 34p. I had to walk away, i couldnt stop laughing. even 50 yards down the road i could still hear him, in the dead silence of a cold November morning, reciting a series of inaccurate values at poor old Raz.

Freezing early morning, straight out of bed isnt condusive to jolliness, but the encounter with Discalculia Man set me up for the day. Still keep giggling now as his voice and bizarre series of mathematical workings ring in my mind. lmao.
