"What about socialisation?" (This is everyone's Biggest Concern. And I mean that Pooh-bear style with capital letters. Because if you homeschool, you clearly never leave the house.)
"I could NEVER spend that much time with my children!"
"What year was the civil war?" (Borders employee. Yes, he should have said "years." And yes, he felt it was his right to grill us because we were homeschoolers.)
"I could never homeschool. My kids don't listen to me."
"We don't give homeschool discounts." (a different Borders employee, who wanted proof of teacher status when I accidentally gave her my Barnes and Noble educator discount card. Yes, Borders DOES give a homeschool discount, but MuNKi had our card. Note: MuNKi NEVER EVER EVER gets hassled about the hs discount. EVER.)
"What about high school? They'll miss Prom." (For some reason, Prom seems to be the only valid reason people can come up with for attending high school.)
"Are you qualified?"
"I wish I could homeschool."
