...basically anything involving arithmetic, screws me up. It's very frustrating for me -- but I bet it's even worse for anybody who has to depend on me for any of these things. I feel like King Arthur. "One, two, five!" "Three, sir!" "Three!" *kaboom*

Thank you for your patience, anybody who's routinely impacted by this particular quirk. I'm just as annoyed at it as you are!

It's called Dyscalcula, and is the numerical equivalent of Duslexia. I get wrong Dates and times, arithmetic, house numbers and phone numbers. Often the phone number I dial is not the one I'm reading, especially if it's a new number.
