*Headdesk*

One of the agents just asked me, and I am not making this up, "How many centimeters are in a meter?"

She's European.

This tops the two times I've been asked when the next leap year was. Barely. (Although one did ask for a formula. Me: "Can you divide the year by four?"

FYI

they've been metric for decades.

Hungary's been metric since the 1870s, like most European countries. (It wasn't even called Hungary back then!) Even my great-grandmother used the metric system all her life.
