But I would look so "bad" if I just called her "lazy"!

As for the "unable to do simple math without a machine", I often have to explain to a store clerk why I am giving them $1.04 for a 79 cent drink. Once they punch it into the register, they realize that I get a quarter in change but....

As for the women's garden clubs in Sewickley, I have commented before that we have twenty of them. If you don't like someone in one club, you start your own and so on, until we have twenty "catty" camps.

I can make wonderful sandwiches, I do house work and laundry (my problem is that I mention that I do all three things, which sometimes is taken the wrong way).

Yes, and if you offer them the four cents after they've already rung in your dollar, they freeze up and have to be rebooted.

Yet they can LEARN and USE it. My autistic son can LEARN it but he rarely able to USE it; he get nervous, even in stores that know him, and he wants to leave immediately. One treasures simple things when you cannot have them.

I'll stop here before I chase Den away. By the way Den, we do seem to allow "free association" in many of our forum threads.
