Do you think this guy believes that if he buys something cheaper than 50€ with 50% off he gets actual money in return?

I worked a seasonal job at Macy's once during the holidays. After that I decided working retail was the Devils work.

Someone here should try pushing carts, not only do you deal with idiots, but you also deal with lazy people, garbage in the carts, and people almost hitting you because their driving abilities are bad.

Sure :) Why not show her a 3D visualization of the function f(x,y) = y - xy/100 where y is the price and x is the numerator of the percentage. She could clearly see that the function touches 0 only if the initial price is 0 or when the percentage reaches 100%.

Well the function computes the final price depending on the initial price and how much the price is reduced. For example if the initial price is 50 and you get 50% off of it then to calculate how much you'll pay you do 50(initial price) minus 50% of the initial cost(50) which is 50 - (50/100)*50 or 50 - (50*50)/100 which is the exact same formula as the function I gave above. Only when you compute the function on a certain range of prices you get the general idea what's happening. You can alway

It's really quite sad that #43 is being downvoted for being smart and mathematically superior to the rest of the FML community. I am ashamed of you folks for being so ashamed of yourselves to put someone down. Yet I'm not sure if he's right because math isn't my forte. Still ashamed of something nonetheless

Who's putting him down, (in the comments anyway) we're just highly mathphobic. We just don't want to have to think math-y...
