    Yikes. That was painful. I listened to the whole thing in the background while I was browsing the net. That's very, very sad.

    I think they know exactly what they're doing and are just trying to aggrevate him to the point where he'll just hang up. Not smart.

    Unfortunately, I think a large percentage of people won't know the difference. That is in large part because .002 is an unusual number of any currency, so I wouldn't be surprised that it would confuse someone. Having taken chemistry, I'm used to figuring out units. Most people probably aren't.

    I knew how to figure out units LONG before I took chemistry. I think I was in 5th grade or something? I mean, this isn't even that hard.

    Yes, but chemistry gets you in the mode of multiply 10 sets of units by each other, yaddayadda... same thing with physics. I don't recall ever having to do such things before Chem I in 10th grade.

    holy crap...
    even if you didn't know units, it's a pretty easy concept, and he explained it to them very clearly what seemed like 20-30 times. that is ridiculous
