There are three categories of people - those who are good at Maths, those who are bad at Maths and those who are absolutely HOPELESS at Maths. We belong to the third category. Oh, you too? Still scared of the word “Maths” because you haven’t forgotten the trauma you faced during your school days due to this annoying subject? Well, you’re not alone. We too hate this subject to the core. Here are 17 things you’ll totally relate to if you’ve spent your school life struggling with Maths!
1. The classroom automatically turned into the Hall of Shame for you during each and every Maths class! No wonder sitting through the Maths period was the most dreaded part of the day for you - throughout your school life!
2. Remember the loud cries of your heart on the days when there were TWO maths periods??? How badly you wished for the Earth to swallow you or your Maths teacher on such sad days!
3. And let’s not even talk about the days when your Maths teacher used to take away the much-awaited games period for an extra Maths class. Why, wicked woman, why???
4. You used to have MAJOR heart attacks, and panic attacks, and all kinds of attacks whenever the teacher announced a surprise Maths test! You still remember that feeling, don’t you?
5. You remember shedding tears of joy every single time you heard that your Maths teacher was on leave. Those days are the reason you know what BLISS is!
