Bathroom Monologue: 5 to 30 to 1 to 6

“Where’d you go? You left at 1:00, and you were scheduled until 5:30! I had to cover your shift!”

“You signed me up for 5:30, which I took to be a ratio of 5 to 30. But that’s actually only a ratio of 1 to 6, so I reduced it and left at 1:06. This country is woefully mathematically illiterate.”

“You’re fired.”

“And you’re innumerate.”
