In class today - Tommy - 08-26-2011

Student: There is something wrong with my calculator my father gave me! He said it is one of the best calculators ever made. But it doesn't work!

Teacher: What's the problem?

Student: Well... It has this big ENTER... I do not understand...

Teacher: Is it this one? (holding up a 15C)

Student: Naa. He has that one and he uses it every day! It is... wait... a... 42S

Teacher: :-)

Such stories become rarer and rarer :-/


Re: In class today - C.Ret - 08-27-2011

Are such stories becoming rarer and rarer because now more students, school girls or boys know how to use an RPN or RPL calculator ?

Or it is rarer and rarer because less and less fathers are still using a calculator ?

Or any other reason ?

I'm 22 and my HP 32s (which is actually older than I am by a few months) is always in my bag.
