Did Patton Oswalt do his math correctly? This question seems more interesting than what the answer is.








How many people would offer to pay 17c just to move on?How much is her time worth /hr? (may be better if last sentence removed)

How much is YOUR time worth? Would it have been worth YOUR time to give her 17 cents so you could advance in line?

















6 times 10 is 60, so $0.17 times 10 is $1.70. How much would she make per year assuming she worked 40 hrs / week for 50 weeks?
