#1050: Forgot Algebra

Forgot Algebra

[[An algebra teacher by the name of Miss Lenhart, a former student, and a bystander. Miss Lenhart is walking away while the former student shouts at her the following:]]

Former Student: Hey, Miss Lenhart! I forgot everything about algebra the moment I graduated, and in 20 years no one has needed me to solve anything for X. I told you I’d never use it! In your face!

It’s weird how proud people are of not learning math when the same arguments apply to learning to play music, cook, or speak a foreign language.
