Really sad after buying Girl Scout cookies.

Bought two boxes of Girl Scout cookies outside my favorite Publix today (bought them because a) I love them and b) I love even more rubbing the Fundies' noses in it by supporting the 'Evil" Girl Scouts.) There were four or five girl scouts selling them, all of them 5th graders from the local school. The cookies were $4 a box, so I tendered a $20 to the girl manning the cash till. She was unable to figure out how much to give me back, even after resorting to counting on her fingers to try and figure it out. Finally a (her?) grandfather with the group came up and told her how much to give me back. Unbelievable from a 5th grader.

If this is at all indicative of the state of basic education in the country today, we are royally and truly screwed.

To the DU'er who was so kind as

to give me a heart - Thank You! I'm not sure that anything I've written on DU deserves it but it is nonetheless sincerely appreciated!
