I suffer from a similar problem, I've never been able to do arithmetic in
my head with any degree of certainty of getting the correct result. Also
I have problems counting money, so what did I end up doing for a living?
Wages :-) (But that was all computerised...and we weren't allowed to
handle actual money!) I can juggle complex maths equations with no
problem though...I just need a calculator to handle the actual numbers.

That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it :-)
