Today, I went for a job interview for a building position at a retail store. They saw on my application that I was good at math. They asked me what the circumference of a circle is. Being nervous during the interview, I accidentally said the area of a circle. I didn't get the job. FML

  • I may sound like a square or a bit obtuse, but don't get yourself worked up about it. Just regroup, circle the wagons, and maybe get yourself some pi. Or go to a bar and find acute girl for a fun time. Look at this from a positive angle - at least you learned something.

  • C = 2*pi*r = pi*d

    Area is pie are square, but that's a lie, because pie are round, except at McDonald's, where they are rectangular.

    In Louisiana, pi = 3. It's the law.
