umm.. is that like, in India??

A friend of mine bought new contact lenses at Sears the other day, and she was asking the girl at the counter when the lenses would be ready...

The girl: about four weeks

My friend: four weeks? But I'm traveling in two weeks! Can't you do something about this?

The girl: oh cool!! Where are you going?

My friend: I'm going to visit some friends in Cairo

The girl: oh that's the capital of India.. right??

My friend: what??

The girl: it's not the capital? *calls out to her friend* hey.. what's the capital of India?

The other girl: I dunno..

My friend: New Delhi

The girl: no it's not new Delhi.. I'm sure of that

My friend: Cairo is the capital of Egypt..

The girl: oh! *silence*... Ok, I'll see if I can have your contacts ready by then...

Way to go Canadian Schools!!
