    .44 cents a jar? Figure out why you need glass and then fill the store room…

    Seriously? Claire is supposed to have a marketing degree and she doesn’t know what a gross of product is?

    Then there wouldn’t be a punch line if she did know.

    It really bothers me how inept this girl is. Yes, I know it’s a comic strip, yes I know it’s all done for comedic effect. Good thing she’s supposedly going for a general business degree, because she wouldn’t last five minutes in marketing.

    Actually that’s .43 per jar — .430555

    Judging by the past strips, she hasn’t paid close attention to many things in her life. This display of mathematical ignorance comes as no surprise.

    Kids today… I heard a standup talk about asking for a dozen chicken nuggets, but the kid behind the counter said he could only sell him six or twelve.

    Being a comic strip does not negate doing it right. Why do people denigrate them so?

    You can thank the corporatization of our schools for that kind of narrow education. It is economical.

    Many years ago, the sole supply guy on a navy sub was sick and another ordered toilet paper before getting underway. He figured out how many individually wrapped rolls they needed for their extended cross Pacific cruise. He was surprised on delivery to discover that a unit was a 64-roll box. The Quarterdeck watch shouldn’t have signed for the delivery before inspecting the truck.

    Hey Navy, lucky you got that.

    In Uncle Sam’s Army, in 1970, all we got was a small roll of TP in our CRATS kit.

    Didn’t help if you got dysentery.

    Thanks for your service all G.I.s. Then and now.

    She didn’t say what, she said why. Why that many? Why not a dozen? I don’t know. But it doesn’t mean she doesn’t know what a gross is. People read as good as they spell in this comments

    I once asked for 2 ounces of pepperoni. The young woman, who looked like a high school student, gave me a puzzled look, and cut .02 pounds (digital readout), which amounted to very few slices. I had to tell her that 2 ounces is .125. If I’d been in teaching mode, not that I’m a teacher beyond being a parent, I’d have asked her how many ounces were in a pound, what part of a pound is 2 ounces, etc.

    Ugh. I’m tutoring algebra and they have to punch .125 into a big calculator with about 5 steps to convert to the fraction equivalent of 1/8. I don’t know what I’m going to do. If they hit one wrong button, not to mention the time it takes. They seem to be on sensory overload when I explain it on top of everything else.

    That’s just gross.
