    Education Is Wasted On The Young

    | Ohio, USA |

    (A number comes across the screen with the same area code as my hometown.)

    Me: “Hi, this is [name]. How can I help you?”

    Customer: “I was wondering if you could give me the number for the store in [town]. I live over in [town I grew up in].”

    Me: “Sure thing. So you live in [town]? I grew up there. I just graduated in ’06.”

    Customer: “Oh wow! What a small world! I graduated in ’82.”

    Me: “That’s awesome. Okay, that number is [number].”

    Customer: “Thanks! Wow, 1906…that’s incredible.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I graduated in 2006, not 1906.”

    Customer: “Oh, no wonder you sound so young!”
