Can anyone explain to me why, to apply for a PA job, I would have had to answer a series of mental arithmetic questions?

I'm not a mathematician. I'm a linguist, if anything. I haven't studied maths in, oh, getting on for seven years. And I couldn't do it. So there went that job.

I can't see why they would ask for that, anyway. I mean, where, in a PA's career, is he or she going to have to add up the numbers between 1 and 99? Or work out how many fucking slices you can get from a pie with three cuts?

I hate this.
