What a Waste of Time
My nine-year-old and I passed a store with a sign that read “Watch Batteries Installed—$5.”
He seemed confused: “Who would pay to watch batteries installed?”

My 17-year-old niece was looking for a job, so her mother scoured the want ads with her. "Here's one. A couple are looking for someone to watch their two kids and do light housekeeping."
"Hel-looo!" said my niece, rolling her eyes. "I can't take that job. I don't know anything about lighthouses."
