We really need to improve our schools

Check out this add on Craigslist “Must have knowledge of basic filing skills to insert and retrieve application packages from file cabinets” Is that for real? Insert and retrieve application packages? Umm, isn’t that just opening up a drawer and pulling out a file? Are our schools that bad? Then the ad requires Microsoft Office skills, ok that is normal but I’m thinking that might be the proper first skill to list because I’m guessing if someone doesn’t have the ability to open a file cabinet then they might not be so good at Microsoft PowerPoint. Then again, I can’t spell very well so who am I to judge.
