Education System Fail
As if I needed more proof about the eroding nature of our public education system, I had a shining example at work on Tuesday afternoon. An 18-year old guy came to buy cigarettes. The conversation went like this:
Boy: "How much is a pack of Pall Malls?"
Me: "Three thirty-four."
Boy: "Can I get two with nine dollars?"
No, I can't make this stuff up. And no, this is not an isolated incident. I see this stuff daily. In large numbers. Along with a bunch of other stuff that would make you slap your forehead. Something has got to change.
