Why am I so bad at bookkeeping? Numbers get me all confused, and they always have. I was born into a family of good mathematicians, but I’d rather have words any day. Put it into words for me please – don’t give me numbers. Give me a description of how it looks or feels or smells or tastes or sounds but don’t make me count it. A list of pluses and minuses is enough to make me break out in hives and start scratching all over, and if you get to X, Y, and Z, forget it. I’ve probably passed out from anaphylactic shock from even considering an algebraic equation. Quickbooks is supposed to be easy, but it ain’t for me. I need an accountant, stat!
