Math Mom: If I've Told You N Times, I've Told You N+1 Times

I can practically hear my mother's voice saying "if I told you once, I've told you a thousand times." Well, for this shirt, we've boiled the adage down to its mathematical terms.

Now buy the shirt, stand up straight and go clean your room! http://shop.neatorama.com/product-info.php?math-mom-told-you-n-times-tshirt-pid477.html

I was going to yell at y'all till SimonSays said some intelligent words in a civil manner.

Now I can't do the same while being angry. =[
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
It's a cyclic formula:

"I've you you N x "
equals "I've told you N + 1 x"

So I've told you 1 time
= I've told you 2 times
(here we apply the formula again)
= I've told you 3 times
(and so on, until...)
= I've told you 1,000 times

So If N = N + 1
then N = N + 999

Therefore the formula does work to Sam K !
