    Some Employees Just Don’t Add Up

    | Israel | Employees, Math & Science, Money

    (I have a birthday voucher that gives me 10% off my purchase. I am buying 2 items.)

    Employee: “Okay, your total comes to [total].”

    Me: “That’s with the 10% off?”

    Employee: “Yes, I gave you 5% of each item.”

    Me: “That’s not the same thing.”

    Employee: “Yes, it is. You get 10% off your whole purchase.”

    Me: “Right, but you gave me 5% off.”

    Employee: “I think we’re both saying the same thing…”

    (My friend and I had to prove to her, using a calculator, that 10% off both items and 5% off each were not the same!)
