What’s 2 + 2?

I already knew I suck at Math but this weekend definitely drove the point home.

Jenni and I went to IKEA for a much needed spending spree. We piled up the cart with everything needed and with a few even more things that we didn’t. Our plan was to just throw everything in and then reassess before we checked out.

As we reassessed the damage, I took out my phone to do some quick calculations. According to my math skillz I was only at $56. Well under budget! I was patting myself on the back and was very proud of myself for doing so well.

Even as the cashier was ringing everything up, I was still amazed at how well I did. Until she gave me my total. $75! What the…? How did it come to $75?!

Apparently, I can’t even add with the aid of a calculator! But I sucked it up and handed over my cash.

And I wasn’t alone. Jenni also miscalculated her total amount. Which made me feel better knowing I wasn’t the only one who couldn’t add!

I know you are dying to find out exactly what I bought, aren’t you?

Not bad for $75 right?
