coworkers make my brain hurt

These two stories are all second hand from Chris when we both got really bored at work last night. He had the Olympics and news on in the casino and a couple of them were talking about the guy who died yesterday. Lisa, one of the dealers, came up and asked where the man was from. Chris told her Georgia. She asked where in Georgia. Chris told her that he was from the *country* Georgia. Lisa didn't even hesitate. She told Chris, "there's no country called Georgia." When he told me this I had to ask if she slept through world geography or something. And we still don't know if she believed him or not when he said it's over in Russia.

This one is worse, however. During the opening ceremony when the Native Canadians - as Chris called them - were doing a traditional dance, Justyn (another dealer) looked up at the TV and said, "what are they doing? There are no Indians in Canada!"
*blinks*
I told Chris they must have all died out during the French/Indian war or something.

Seriously. Do these people even have brains????

Oh yeah, we were running with it last night for a while. Casino employees have no sense of when to stop sometimes. *snickers*

It really is. Such sadness. My heart really goes out to his family.

When *I* was in school, there *was* no country named Georgia. It was part of the USSR. *sticks tongue out*

Yeah, but she can't use that excuse. She's younger than I am and the country formed when I was in elementary school. *grins*

I feel old. I once had a coworker (she was about a dozen years my junior) argue with me about there having been a shuttle explosion (this was a few years prior to the Columbia). Turned out she had been born after, but still, that's a big one to miss. I may not have been alive when JFK or Lincoln were shot, but I don't insist that no president was ever assasinated!

I feel really old. I think the official breakup of the USSR was when I was in high school and just starting college the 1994 Winter Olympics being the first after that)
