It seems that I am always wrong here, you know with certain things like finances for a class project, my partner says that our float was an expense for our record of revenue, I put it down as a revenue because if it was an expense it would end up being $20.00 from $0.00 which would be -$20.00, am I correct?
Anways, we made a profit of $25.50 from sales that day and she claims that our profit would be $45.50…. but wait, seeing as our float was an expense we are listed as $20.00 in the hole, so our balance to that point would be $5.50 and not $45.50.
As I mention that and argue it nicely she says « Figure it out yourself, I’m leaving » and she storms out all pissed off for being wrong herself*.
Really, if I haven’t already lost you out in the land of finances you’d see my point that $25.50+$-20.00=$5.50. But I won’t argue other peoples insanity.

*edit: What my original post didn’t include was the conversation running up to this, I remember it very clearly because basically it was a bit cray cray. When I explained to her the maths behind it and posed the question to her, because we basically owe 20$ for the float, she said and I quote
God will make it right.
then it went down hill from there. The original post isn’t really explaining it well and since I can’t find the original document nor remember much other than the slap down of God’s holy name, I’m going to leave it as is. Because you can’t change history.
