Basic Math?

I'm just amazed by the math skillz of others...

So today I'm at the deli counter of whole foods order deli meats.  I ask for "point two pounds" (0.2lbs) of this certain meat. The person behind the counter couldn't understand me, I thought the store was just loud, and repeated my order. Then they go, "Two pounds?".  At this point I go, "can I have a fifth of a pound?" Which apparently makes sense, as the deli worker now goes, "oh, point TWENTY!"
