Conversations with my sons Vol. 2: Mathematics

A few weeks ago in Budapest:

Matthew: Dad, How much does a 4 ct box of cicken nuggets cost at McD?
Me: HUF 230 and that includes the sauce.
Matthew: And how much does a 6 ct cost?
Me: HUF 620 with the sauce.
(About two minutes later.)
Matthew: So I can get 6 pieces and a sauce for HUF 620 or 12 pieces with 3 sauces for 690?
Me: Exactly.
Matthew: So how stupid do you have to be to buy the 6 piece one?


  1. That says something about McDonald's selling policy...and about your smart son, too!
    I love to read your dialogues your sons, keep them coming...

  2. Oh, that is so funny! He's a pretty clever kid, I'm assuming he'll be an accountant one day!

  3. Ramona,
    I think it is a major glitch for McD. Or maybe that they only sell 6 nuggets in meals (or four in Happy Meal), so people mostly buy the 6 in meals... Still, my kid had a point and was rewarded with some very non-kosher Chicken McNuggets.

    The 4 piece ones.

  4. Emm,

    No, not an accountant. I can see the next Zach Braff in him. Or even the next David Hewlett. The kid has acting skills and is a total geek-in-training. I just didn't know he could multiply three digit numbers. Heck, I didn't know he could multiply! (and I'm not talking about the replenishing the earth variety.)

  5. wow! your son gets the award for having the sharpest whit today! he is right on it! :0)
