Solving Problems

Last month, I got an email from a tutoring service (I don’t know why). In the body of the email were some algebra or calculus equations — you know, something mathy and then a short note below the that read,

“Can you  solve our complicated problems?”

I was a bit insulted, so I sent an email back that said,

“Dear Sir or Madam,

“You shouldn’t look to someone else to solve your problems.  How can you possibly grow into the best person you can be if you look to others to solve your problems for you?”

Funny, but I have yet to receive a response or another email.

  1. One of these days I’m going to buy that tee shirt that says, “Dear Math, I’m not a therapist. Solve your own problems.”

  2. I agree Donna, problem solving baby steps . . . 1+1=2 then calulus, then how to keep a mother-in-law out of your personal business!! Baby steps . . . .
