PostSubject: OT: Sad state of America's education today.   Thu Mar 15, 2018 5:08 pm

Just stopped into a Taco Bell today to replenish my supply of Fire sauce packets. That of course requires me to make a small purchase, no big deal. When I walked into the store there was a young guy and he commented on my shirt. He exclaimed, "I like that shirt. It has the Jordan logo on it." I was wearing my season t-shirt from a couple years ago. Anyway a young girl then proceeds to take my order and then asks for my name so she can type it into the system so they'll know who to give my order to when it's ready. I reply, "Well because your coworker likes my shirt I'll be Bo today." She looks at me and smiles even though she obviously didn't get it. That's bad but excusable as she wasn't alive for much of Bo's life. However, she looks at the computer screen for a few seconds and then asks me, "How do you spell that?" Seriously, how do you spell Bo? And these people want $15 an hour....

Aren't you being a tad harsh there, 2.0? She could well have had "BEAU" or "BOW" (ribbon-tying) in mind, and wasn't sure which you "were", eh?

Context. Who in the world would have their name be "bow"? And haven't you heard a younger person use the word "beau" semi-recently? For some odd reason they pronounce it <BOO>. That is several years old though but though point is the same.

With that absolutely ridiculous names out there today, it does not surprise me she questioned what the spelling was.

Beaux

Seriously though I agree with Bo. Just because they get more money doesn't mean they are any smarter or better. In fact the service seems to have gotten absolutely atrocious when I stop.

That being said "some" fast food employees actually deserve the $15, but definitely not all. That trick is how to make it legal to pay those supporting families more than high school punks...

I'm not mad, I just don't see a dig in your comment.  I use Taco Bell fire sauce for hot sauce.  So. what's your point?
