So seriously, we have so many numbers running through our heads on a daily basis.... how can we keep track of all of them?
I had someone come up to me the other day and ask my hourly rate for proofreading. (sigh) I supposed I looked rather unorganized or clueless, but off the top of my head I just don't remember. It's not a number I have memorized or that I'm asked on a regular basis.
In case you're wondering, I looked it up. And now that I've got a number in my head the chances of anyone asking me today have decreased exponentially.
