This country's educational system has lost its fucking mind.
Right. Because every compound phrase always has its simplest and most literal meaning, and societies never change, so institutions never have to adapt to those changes. And of course, if someone in their fifties decides they want to go into one of those IT jobs they keep hearing about, they should go to their local high school and sit in on trig and Algebra II and Calculus, and maybe write a few essays on Catcher in the Rye and Huck Finn first, before they can take the courses for their IT certificate.
And of course the answer that lets you blame someone for not being as smart as you is always the right one.
