Genius

When I got to work on Friday my room was full of staff wanting to use a machine but both of my big machines were jammed.
I started to unjam one, my grandson who is 11 offered to have a look at the other one.
We got both the machines working within a few moments.
I told him how clever I thought he was.
He said 'All I did was follow the instructions on the screen'
I replied 'I know, that's what's so clever, no-one else thought to look at the screen!'

I had to smile at your grandsons comment........amazing how so called brainy people are incapable of thinking to see if they can help matters.

Yep, been there and done that. Something about teachers brains..... Generously I assumed they were operating on a higher planet!!
