Fault In The Education
I realized something the first time I went to a restaurant with friends, parent-less and having to pay for myself. On my bill there was three different things just above the total, like side expenses. I had no idea what they were and neither did my friends. We were embarrassed, but we had to ask one of the waitresses. She told us one meant taxes and one meant tips, which, despite my naive mind thought, was not an option to pay. However she did not tell us the third one, and I still don't know what it is. This made me realize that there is a little screw up in our education system. See, I can tell you what the subject of this sentence is and if this a direct expansion or an indirect expansion, but I still don't know some simple words in french like board, shelf, along, fit and hate. Every year I learn how to write book responses better and better, how to find a theme and connect it to another story, but school will never teach me stuff I am going to need in the real world. How will I learn to pay taxes? How will I learn how to properly raise a child? How will I learn about politics? Some people wonder how certain adults can mess up, whether it is having money problems, mistreating their kids, being unable to get a job, or getting in trouble with the government. I blame our educations. I blame it because school never taught us, and never will teach us, how to be an adult. All I can do is hope that, when the time comes, I won't get these problems and I will figure it out for myself, starting with searching up what's on a bill.
