TechnoBoy usually completes his math assignments by starting at the last problem on the page and working backward to the first. Normally this isn’t a problem but every once in a while he neglects to notice that he’s not on the right lesson and accidentally works on the wrong one.
This happened again the other day and I couldn’t resist teasing, “That’s what you get for working backwards on your math.”
He responded, “I like doing math that way. I work faster.”
Soooooo would you call that Reverse Psychology?
Heh, heh, heh. I crack me up. 😀
