Grade school math flashbacks

This afternoon I went to one of those crazy giant chain drug stores to get some Super Glue. As I stood in the school supplies aisle pondering the glues, a woman stopped me and asked "You don't see a protractor around here anywhere, do you?"

I responded that I hadn't seen a protractor since I was in the fifth grade.

UPDATE:

Today I was in Shadyside, and happened to stop into the Rite Aid. And what did I see there in the freaking school supplies aisle but a fucking protractor. A protractor and a compass, as a matter of fact.

I just about peed.

I still have a fairly fuzzy grasp of the difference between a protractor and a compass. This despite the fact that I actually had to teach a lesson last year to middle school students on how to make a pie chart using the abrove instruments. If anyone tells you the best way to learn something is to teach it, they are lying.
