and by "kids," i mean "high schoolers."
oh and by "stupid," i mean "OH. MY. GOD. WHAT. ARE. THEY. DOING. IN. SCHOOL."
1. best buy - i was looking for tv shows on sale, which were there the week before. i go to the service desk. i ask the girl:
me - "how often do the tv shows go on sale?"
her - "oh, about twice a year."
me - "really?! well...ok."
her - "yeah. about once every three months or so."
i pause to let the stupidity resonate in your head.
2. (the rest of these stories come from my friends' school) a girl in my friend rodger's class actually raised her hand and said "do people in spanish speaking countries like south africa drink yellow soda?"
3. a girl in my friend angela's class actually did not know the seasons. angela says, "well, soandso, there's summer. that's when we aren't in school. fall is when the leaves fall from the trees. winter is when it's cold, and spring is when everything grows again." (i can't imagine having to say that to a high schooler) so the girl calmly replies, "so...when is autumn?"
i fear for the future of this country.
studio 60 is aweswome. the office is awesome. scrubs is awesome. 30 rock is awesome. heroes has gone downhill, and honestly, it's jeph loeb's fault. he is sub-par. his comics are only decent. smallville is a joke, and now heroes is spiraling down.
anyway, studio 60. i'm so freaking addicted to this show. during my breaks at work i look up articles and stuff about the show. i'm GENUINELY concerned that they are going to cancel the show. but the best part is the stuff i'm learning. everytime they mention any plays or authors, i look them up on wikipedia. august strindberg. look back in anger. the hollywood blacklist. i think i'm going crazy. if i do ever move to LA to be a famous actor (read: "respected thespian"), i wanna be on that show.
ok this post is kinda pointless, so i'm gonna...i'm gonna...i'm gonna GO!
