OH GOD, IT BURNS!

OH GOD, IT BURNS!

Oren called me today – 1) to say Happy Birthday, and 2) to ask me homework questions.

Oren: Okay, ready?
Me: Shoot.
Oren: Okay – are you taller than a meter?
Me: A…?
Oren: Meter.
Me: Rings a bell.
Oren: Mom!
Me: [clickity-clackity]
Oren: Mom?
Me: [clickity-clackity] Hold on.
Oren: MOM.
Me: [clickity-clackity] I’m not Googling this.
Oren: Okay.
Me: But if I was, it wouldn’t be against the law, is all I’m saying.
Oren: I think you’re taller than a meter.
Me: Fucking metric system!
Oren: The what system?
Me: See? The school system has failed us BOTH.
Oren: So does it say if you’re taller or not?
Me: It says I need to repeat the fourth grade.
Oren: ‘Cause that’s gonna happen.

  1. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Thats hilarious. I read it to my co-worker and we both laughed hysterically and then debated the properties of a meter… we ALL need to repeat 4th grade apparently.

  2. Sweet! We can re-do it together. My fat ass will never fit into that little kid chair, though. I’m fucked before I even start.

  8. Just got back from Australia, everything was metric. I think it is just a sneaky way to justify making things smaller. Smaller drink cups, smaller food servings… Two weeks isn’t enough to learn metric but I did figure out temps under 20 celsius suck!

  10. height by metric is totally fucking pointless and I don’t know how I’m supposed to estimate shit. Like, at 6 foot, I’m about 183 centimeters tall, but how tall is someone who’s 163 centimeters? How can I describe the idiot who tried to break into my house who was about 5’8″?

    temperatures and weight however rock in metric IMHO.

    konichiwa, bitches.

  11. Yeah, I only tell people how much I weigh in the metric system. Obvs.
