There is no perceived IT generation gap: Young people really are thick

A similar thing happened at school when I was younger. We had a new American teacher and one of my class mates started asking around the class for a rubber. She got quite upset, yelled at him and sent him out. She apologised in the next lesson, having spoken with her colleagues and finding out that a rubber in Aus was an eraser and not a condom as it was in the US.

She was a pretty good sport about the continuous jokes she got for the rest of the year...
