Another true change story at Micky Ds:
The wife and I order at the drive thru with a total of $4.67. We get to the window and hand the girl a $5 then say hang on I got the change (my wife had counted it out while we had waited). I hand the girl the change but she had already put $5 on the computer. She literally could not figure out that the with the 5.67 my change back would be a dollar bill. She was going to give me back .33 but I stopped her. She had to call a manager because she was so flustered by then. The manager would not give me a dollar bill either! The manager insisted that I HAD to take my .67 cents back and then take the .33!! She was even so brazen as to say it was "company policy"!!!! At that point, it was all I could do to just let it go but trust me this isn't the first time I have told the story!!


I'm telling ya folks we are headed toward a reality that resembles one of those B rated Sci-Fi movies where humans devolve into idiots and machines do everything for them...

Now that is something I can get with. That makes a whole lot of sense. We have lots of reusable bags in the car, take the loaded cart to the car and bag everything and off we go.

Watch the movie "Idiocracy" !

Society is evolving such that we never have to deal with each other face to face.

We are doing it right now with these posts.

On top of the math thing, most of the young people cannot spell, and their grammar is awful!

Its sometimes easy to bash young folks. They clearly cover the spectrum from capable to in-capable just as people of all ages. Most are pretty capable and better able to function in todays world than a lot of us older folks that don't want to deal with change.

I have twin grandsons age 15. I told them I was happy to see them working hard for good grades. They looked at each other then one said ~~ you don't have to work hard as every thing is easy so the dumb ones pass.

They no longer teach cursive writing at the school my grandkids attend! They do however teach typing, I think all the way down to grade school.

I took typing in high school and there was only one other boy in the class. I only took it cause I had a crush on one of the girls in the class. I don't recall the girls name now but I sure am glad I took the class!!!

When I took COBOL and FORTRAN programming in college, we were using key punch machines (sorta like the old time clock cards) to enter data and the results were printed only. No keyboard or monitor screen! I actually watched them make the transition to keyboard and monitor system at the college. That system took up a couple rooms the size of an average living room. Today, my smart phone is more capable than that entire system!

That sort of advancement in technology has and will continue to have unexpected consequences.....

Cap, that would be funny if it wasn't for the fact that it's TRUE

You are correct, it is not funny. We certainly cannot hurt anyone's feelings by failing them so the repeat a class or a grade. What happened to special ed classes where those that needed extra help received it? The people that complain the most about the education system are the ones that make it suck so bad.
