Yes, I’m back.

Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

No, I don’t know what the guys really thought of what I taught them, but I know this … it wasn’t nearly as useful as this would have been to me, when I was a kid studying maths.

How good is that!

Why the hell didn’t they teach me to do subtraction like that when I was at school.

Given I once got 2% in a maths test, Mrs Kirk – my maths teacher – has a lot to answer for.

Which I’m sure my students in Amsterdam are also thinking about me as well. Bugger.

You being back is the worst news for my impending week.
It’s also bad news for Wieden and your clients if you think that maths solution is innovative. Did you work for Lehman Brothers?

Jill is a saint.

She has to be to marry him.

Comment by DH

Yes she is. And for the reason you say. Dammit.

Comment by Rob

I’ve read some of the comments of the students Robert and it seems they learnt plenty from you. My concern is that if you found this maths approach smart, what on earth did you teach them. Good to have you back.

Comment by George

Mrs Kirk obviously knew that you’d never use subtraction. You only ever need to add up large numbers.

Comment by John

back on fucking form doddsy.

Comment by andy@cynic

Wow, I’ve heard about teachers building their students for the future, but this is ridiculous. Not sure I did that to the guys in Amsterdam … which means that will be another bunch of people who will blame me for something. Ha.
