Super Wish This Didn't Happen

"Over here, Bob! I see protractors down here!"

"Thanks, Mom."

"Here you go."

"That's not a protractor."

"Yes it is."

"No, it actually isn't. It's a compass."

"I know it says that but compass is another word for protractor."

"Mom? You are completely wrong about this. Look. This is a protractor. It even says it on the package. Protractor here  - and this one's a compass."

"That's weird. Why would they label that half-round ruler a protractor?'

"Oh my God, Mom. Really?"


  1. Frankly, I can't believe they still use either a compass or a protractor but I'm sort of really glad they do.

    1. Apparently they do! (Apparently I never did.) xo
