Sizing up an income

I've noticed more than a few times in conversation one person asking another about a pay rate for this or that position. After getting an hourly rate, the person will indicate he wants to know about annual pay.

Save some breath. Take the hourly pay, double it, and add "thousand" at the end. That approximates the annual pay (assuming a forty hour workweek).
