Try to follow me on this one. One co-worker and a cow-orker are standing at my desk.
Co-worker notices that I have a 1% milk and asks how I like it. I tell her that I like it okay, but that I would have preferred Skim.
Cow-orker says he agrees, and that 1% is not that much less than 2% anyway.
Co-worker says, "Well, it's half as much as 2%".
Cow-orker says, "No it isn't, it's just 1% less."
Co-worker says "1% is HALF of 2%"
Cow-orker says "No it isn't."
Co-worker says "If you have two dollars and give me half, what do you have left?"
Cow-orker says "1 dollar, but we're talking percents here, that's different."
I think that's my new slogan for the day: "We're talking percents here, that's different."
