It's Just What I Do

Some people just have charity in their hearts. Whether it be working in a soup kitchen to help the homeless, or donating time to be a Big Brother, or maybe donating money to charities aimed at curing AIDs in Africa, certain people just want to make a difference. Me, I spend 25 minutes teaching algebra to the Pakistani guy behind the counter at 7-11 when all I want to do is eat my big bite. If I can help one person at 7-11 make change faster I feel like I've done my part you know. Because of me that guy is really going to nail that algebra test, and that really warms the heart. Why do I do it? Because I'm just a great guy, that's why.

I think you are missing the point - you should be teaching him how to speak English first, right?

Mike - Indeed, I'm a hell of a person

Rachel, Ash - Even though I think I could hang in a primary with Barrack Obama, mostly because he's done way more illegal drugs than me, that damn age minimum means I'm going to have to wait until the 2016 election, and whos knows what kind of trouble I can get into between now and than.

Los - Actually that was a lot of the problem, he didn't understand words like decrease or average, once I explained those he had no trouble with the actual math

Why am I the only person wondering how algebra is neccessary to the act of making change? Simple subtraction normally works fine for me. But then, I hate math so I'm not expert.
