    These people are behind me in the parking lot, mom and a boy about 5:

    Boy:
    What does that bumper sticker say?

    Mom:
    "Mrs. Tokyo"

    Boy:
    What does that mean?

    Mom:
    It's her way of saying she is from Korea.

    :lol:
    I almost turned around, but remembered people don't like being corrected or made to look stupid, so I walked faster. I couldn't keep the smile off my face.
    and just kept thinking....
    Good luck in school kid, cause momma is not going to be much help.

    I am guessing that most school districts gave up on geography rather than face changes in borders and place names, but I would like to think MY learning disabled students would not make THAT error.

    Well, and then there are those who still don't realize that Hawaii is a State and still tell us that when "we come to the States or back in the States....".

    Funny, but sad too. I live an hour from Lake Michigan. Lots of people don't realize how HUGE the Great Lakes are.

    I used to live in London.......Ohio.....and I've heard people say I'm from England. Apparently they stop listening after I say London.

    Reminded me of some years ago when I wanted to know where there was a Tower Records store in NH.
    The Tower gal asked what state New Hampshire was in.

    It's disheartening at the very least . I wound up homeschooling our son for five years for that very reason.

    I actually had a customer service rep get into an argument with me because I told her I was in Washington state, which was on the west coast. She insisted the only states on the west coast were Oregon and California.

    I don't think any schools around here are teaching geography anymore. my son never did until i started homeschooling him. he thinks maps and stuff are cool and has a lot of fun with it.

    I could never keep the states straight until we started traveling the country by car. Now I can look at a map without words and tell what state is which.
