People are just no damn good. ;) From Michael Nesmith's Elephant Parts, apparently.


Due to a computer error that took a century off his age a 105 year old retired teacher in Switzerland was ordered to attend elementary school in 1998. The computer listed only the last two digits of residents birthdates so he and the town's 65 5-year-old's received a letter ordering them to start school. The computer system has since been changed.

I think it would've been the pinnacle of sarcasm if the guy had shown up at his local kindergarten.

"The government says I have to be here. I require milk and cookies and first pick of cots at nap time."

If I were that kindgarten teacher, I'd be delighted. Because in a perfect world, he'd be a congenial old grandfather-type man who'd delight the kids by telling lots of this-is-prety-fantastical-but-you-never-know-it-might-have-really-happened-to-me stories. :)

...it's possible that my brain equates all old Swiss men with the grandfather in Heidi...
