    I have to remember this as a teacher, too. Most students will not tell you they have no idea what you just said. You kinda have to read it in their faces and not go over their head. Sometimes it is hard. Is there really no dumb question?

    When entering said large-box electronics stores, I often enjoy taking DH along. He looks for those people who are geek-speaking to beginners, and then likes to try to outgeek them. He laughs because a lot of the times they (the workers) really don’t know what they are talking about, and when they get asked a lot of questions by someone who is armed with knowledge (and most of the time the correct answer already), they try to fake their way out of the conversation. 🙂 And by that point he has them cornered. 🙂

    @ Sue Ellen – didn’t even think about it from the perspective of teachers, but YEAH! I can totally remember my math teachers in school who could only explain a concept ONE way. If you didn’t get it, you just got the exact same explanation over and over again. I think the use of metaphor and analogy may not be many math teachers’ strong suits…

    @ Daryn – LOL, I can totally see your DH pwning some kid at “Buy More” like that… (“pwn” = geek speak for “verbally or in some other way dominating a competitor”)…
