Friday fun: Are you an accounting nerd?

William Brighenti presents the ultimate geek test. Are you ready for your results? (WARNING: Don't read this if you're easily offended!)

There are varying degrees of accounting nerdiness. Some accounting nerds live normal lives, marry and, according to Kinsley, even propagate. Some never marry since everyone they ever dated lapsed into comas, never to be heard from again. Others are complete introverts and should never have left the convent or monastery. (The Father of Accounting, Luca Pacioli, was a monk. He never left the monastery. Ergo, he was also the Father of Accounting Nerdiness.)

Do you know how much of an accounting nerd you are? Of course you do. Or do you?! Like most accounting nerds, you probably suffer from the mistaken belief that you are not an accounting nerd at all...

Aha!

"On your honeymoon, did you select a resort offering a CPD course in order to deduct its cost"

Of course not ... bit of a problem with the duality principle there.

Or has that just added a point to my nerd score?

Uh oh!

I've just had a look around the office at some of my colleagues and a few of them can answer yes to some of these! There's a Spock mug and more than a few messy keyboard eaters!

I had to answer yes to question 2. My mum always used to line up the food on the kitchen counter when we got back from the supermarket and go through the receipt to check it's all there - now I do it too!

And what is wrong with bringing one's laptop to bed or sex via r

And what is wrong with bringing one's laptop to bed as long as you do not wear your glasses in bed necessitating a visit to the emergency room of a hospital to remove the glass splinter's from your beloved's derriere?

And don't knock sex via remote access unless you've tried it.  You might get a "charge" out of it.

Incidentally, are accountants boring, too, besides being nerdy?  Please see, "Is accounting really boring, or has everyone else just been getting it wrong?", and judge for yourself.

Oh dear Gina

Sorry Gina but that is really really sad.  Pointless too, if you find a mistake you've left the store so you cant get anything done about it.

Maybe I shouldnt be an accountant because I never check my change, never check bills, and indeed today 2 clients paid me in cash and I didnt even count it to see if it was correct - I never do.  Maybe Im too trusting.

Not so, CD

You may be out of pocket, but if there is an item missing you might still have to go out again and get it.

With kind regards
