‘Assets, my love of my life, are on the left of the equation’
‘Uh huh’ responded the love of my life, perusing the breakfast menu
‘And Liabilities and Equity, well, they appear on the right’
‘I think I’ll grab a skinny latte, tea for you?’
‘. . . and despite them appearing on the opposite side of the equation, both have debits on the left, and credits on the right’ I persisted, proudly
‘I might grab the Bircher muesli, although I had that last week. It really didn’t fill me up’
‘ . . . now although you increase debits on the left, for liabilities and equity, they increase on the credit side. Same with Revenues, but Expenses are treated like assets and increase with debits’
‘Oh, only one week to go for Avengers! You excited?’
‘Am I ever! I hope everyone dies!’
‘You’re such an idiot’
An lo, Richard presented his findings on Accounting Fundamentals to the Treasury, confirming his status as more of a liability than an asset. The course on the free MBA from Smart.ly seemed perfectly reasonable, if not challenging – although I can generally save money, my brain refuses to let anything in associated with debits and credits. Balance sheets are my trigger-point for narcolepsy. Note that I said narcolepsy not necrophilia, completely different conversational rabbit holes which can only end badly. Walking into a bank when they’re explaining your financials and you claiming that balance sheets are your trigger-point for necrophilia will have you arrested.
In talking with MBA holders, the jury seems to be out on their worth: some have used the skills, others claim it’s a total waste of time and money. The network of who you meet seems to be the key. And what’s the best network in the world? Social, either BookFace or LinkedIn. Let’s see how Smart.ly does (I have no affiliation).
Have a wonderful Easter, here are some pictures of animals at Zoos. No Easter bunnies, though.
