The curse of being a math major

Give me an absolutely insane problem, and I’ll have no problem with it at all. Ask me to do simple math (even just counting) and I won’t have the slightest clue what I’m doing. For example, the other day during work “Ok so I have 6 glasses…wait  9. No only 8. So if I need 15 total, then I need…. 6 more. Wait 8. No, 9!” Co-Worker: “…you mean 7? Aren’t you a math major?!?!”. Don’t even bother asking me to do something like multiplication!
