don't know much about a science book, don't know much about the French I took
Female Offspring #1 is working on a study that involves the elderly and she has had to spend a lot of time interviewing and instructing them over the last several months.
She came home the other weekend and the first thing she said was, "Mom, I don't know how much you're paid to work with the elderly, but it is NOT NEARLY ENOUGH! They're driving me CRAZY!" LOL....
Her professor actually told her to "go to retirement homes and interview people ages 55 through 85" to see if they were interested in taking part in the study. She said, "He is so out of touch that I had to point out to him that most people age 55 are WORKING, not living in retirement homes."
At the rate this country is going, before long the 85 yr olds will still be working, too.
