Oh wow.

As some of you may know, I’m back working at the same convenience store in my home town (make that home community) as I did last summer. Last night, a customer came in right at closing and stayed and talked for 20 minutes. Here’s a conversation clip I think deserves to be shared with others.

Him: So, what are you taking in college?
Me: Journalism.
Him: (looks puzzled) What is that?
Me: Umm… writing?
Him: What, like spelling?

I only wish I was kidding.

  1. I wish you were kidding too. No wonder Canadians hold journalism in such low regard — some of them don’t even know what the word means.
