“I’m glad I learned about parallelograms in high school instead of how to do my taxes”

"I’m glad I learned about parallelograms in high school instead of how to do my taxes. It comes in so handy during parallelogram season” is a joke that has been printed on many images. How to fill out income tax forms is usually not taught in grade school or in college, but math (parallelograms) is.

“I’m glad I learned about parallelograms instead of how to do taxes. It’s really come in handy this parallelogram season” was posted on Twitter by Sage Boggs on March 23, 2015.

Look back on your high school years for a moment. Which subjects do you use most now that you’re an adult in the real world?

It’s pretty likely you rarely use trigonometry, algebra, or calculus in your everyday life. That’s why you’ve probably seen those funny memes about the lack of personal finance education in schools. One of my favorites says:
