Yesterday I bought a block of 20 stamps à €0,02. (The German postal services have increased the postage cost for letters from €0,58 to €0,60.)
the man behind the cashier started to work his calculator, I said
"that'll be €0,40 I suppose". The salesman said, "I always use the
calculator... erm... that'll be €0,40 indeed. No surprise our Chancellor
is a woman."
German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, is a woman indeed, and she has a PhD
in Sciences. (I shall refrain from discussing her politics here.)
Germans have realised that women are good at maths. Q.E.D.
