Mathematical Shenanigans

Poor, silly female human.


You brought the balance forward from the previous month. You noted the ending balance on the statement. You added any deposits not shown on the statement. You added up the checks and withdrawals not shown on the statement. (The things you spent money on! Unbelievable. And you call yourself an adult?) You subtracted this subtotal from the previous figure…

And you’re off by $174.21.

You checked your math. All of it. You checked the bank’s math. You re-checked off all the posted transactions, using a different color of ink. You even copied the spoiled ledger over and tried it all again. Ehehehehehe. Still off! And by a different amount! Now what are you going to do?

Well, I suppose crying and eating carbs is one option.
