In His Own Words

Sam! I have a story for you about mathematics and financial literacy.

I went to the deli counter Saturday. I requested 3/4 lb. of lunchmeat. The young person (early 20s) placed 0.34 lbs. of sliced meat on the scale, then asked, “Will that be all?”

Stunned (that they equated 3/4 with 0.34) I suggested, “why not make it a full pound?”  The person then sliced more meat, resulting in 1.5 Lbs on the scale.

At this point, I’m thinking, “I’ll just freeze part of that… and end this transaction.”    

Bottom line: You are doing important work!  This person most likely graduated from high school in suburban Chicagoland.  Anyhow, I thought of you as I reflected on the event.

Share your story with Sammy Rabbit and his global audience, whether it is a:

…or your childhood money memories.
