Welcome to the “I’m right 97.9% of time” Channel


If I had a radio station, it would be 97.9 because that happens to be the exact same number (in percentage) I am correct.  This is probably annoying to a lot of people but it true.  If you ask me a question, 97.9 percent of the time, I’ll be correct.  In a lot of disagreements with certain members of my household, this proven statistic has been more than once been proven.

Like a wild space time theory that sounds too far fetch yet you know that it might be true, my 97.9% rings true.  As the percentage clearly shows, I am not right 100% of the time, merely 97.9% of the time.  This isn’t a wild crazy “I’m right all the time” rave.  It is a modest, yet true 907.9% correctness factor.

An example of the 97.9% correctness factor:

Wife: “What time are we supposed to be there?”

Me: “6 pm.”

Wife: “Are you sure?  That sounds late.”

Me: “Nope.  6 pm.”

Wife: “No, I think you are wrong.  I’m pretty sure the invitation said the event starts at 5:30 pm.”

Me: “No, really, it is 6 pm.”

Wife: “Well, I don’t believe you and I’m looking for the invitation.”

Wife proceeds to spend 15 minutes looking through various piles of letters, notes, children’s drawings, and grocery store ads.  Finally discovers invitation and says..
Wife: “Oh, you’re right.  It is 6 pm”.

Am I always right?  No, I’m not.  My correctness factor clearly shows I commit errors 2.1% of the time.  These errors might be taking the wrong exit, buying the wrong toothpaste for the kids, or saying the wrong name for someone.  Minor stuff.

My wife would like to believe I think that I am right 100% of the time.  However, we know we can’t be right all the time.  We all make mistakes.  That is why I tell her whenever she asks me “Are you ever wrong?  Do you every make a mistake?”  I can clearly point to my 97.9% correctness factor and say “Yes, I do make mistakes; just not very often.”

As always, your comments and links to my blog are more than welcome!
