Quote from: RatGuy on February 06, 2020, 10:58:38 AMMy wife recently left the glamorous world of cosmetics and skin care to take a retail management position at our university bookstore. She supervises a number of student workers and was suprised to learn that one of the young men didn't know the word "band." She told him, "band these items together." He didn't know what that meant. "You know, like with a rubber band?" "I don't know how to do that."
