Ignorance

Ah, I do find people who have an opinion on something they know nothing of, very funny.

Schools started on Wednesday and some of the homeschool parents decided to get together and celebrate “not back to school”.

I picked Jason up from a friend just before the get-together (who also homeschool) when an older man stopped next to us.

He asked us why the children aren’t in school and we explained that they are homeschooled. He looked at us with that typical this-is-not-right look and drove on. He then reversed and said “Well as long as they know how to answer a phone one day… ”

I just had to laugh.

He said that to a child who will be an accountant and already has plenty of experience.

Another who wants to become an architect.

Uhm, yeah they will be able to answer a phone. All CEO’s know how to answer a phone.

  1. Hah, die blerrie ou drol. You know how you always think of the perfect thing to say after it’s happened? Well, hou die ene maar reg vir as dit ooit weer so gebeur; “En wat stel oom so belang in die jong kinders? Ek gaan oom se registrasie neer skryf…” (watch hoe vinnig ry hy dan weg). (I’m assuming it’s an older lesser informed person, but this would work for any age hahaha).
