My stock has fallen in the office since I wasn't able to explain what it means to "beat the spread" to a young female co-worker. I had to call another guy over to explain it to both of us. It was humiliating.

The sad thing is, I have had "the spread" explained to me at least five times by different people, sometimes with diagrams. Also, just now I read the Wikipedia article about "spread betting" and I still don't understand it. My self-esteem has plummeted.

My failure to understand "the spread" has a negative impact on my life.
