Okay, I was made to feel pretty stupid at the bar the other night (got out-voted 3 to 1) and I’m hoping for some vindication here.
We all know a baker’s dozen is 13. I always thought it meant that the baker would make 13 and eat one himself, leaving 12 to give to the customer.
My friends all thought it was obvious that the baker gives the customer 13 as a favor.
Was the process of making me feel like an ass justified in regards to this argument?
