Marriage 101, Lecture 526: Math, or, Let me count the ways

SH: So how much will it cost?

Me: She said ten something after the 20% discount.

How many stones? Me: A lot. SH: Let me count.

SH: I thought it was 50%.

Me: Nope.

SH: Didn't you say the original price was eleven dollars?

Me: Something like that.

SH: But that's not right.

Me: What do you mean?

SH: Eleven dollars with 20% off is way under ten dollars.

Me: Well, taxes or something.

SH: No! Twenty percent of $11 is $2.20, so it should be $9.80!

Me: Whatever. I don't care. It costs what it costs.

SH: But the numbers aren't right.

Me: You call her and give her a math lesson. I don't care.
