Of course you’re going to have to use calculus once you’re out in the world of work.

Jesus!

I know all kinds of people who worked their way up to become Vice President of major companies using calculus!

These multi-variable functions and derivitaves are the stuff on which Western Civilization was built!

Who the hell do you think you are to question the utility of these exercises?

You know who doesn’t use calculus literally every day?

Janitors… That’s who!

And hurry, it’s almost 3 PM and I’m not drunk yet!

Do you want to grow up to be a doorman?

No?
