Technical Difficulties

I love when my mother makes things more difficult than they need to be.

She's filling out a consumer info card survey warranty dealie that came with a new phone they just bought.  The question is the usual, "Select the highest amount of education you've completed".  We've all seen it, it is NOT a difficult question to answer.

She tells me there's three choices, and notes high school, college, and I presume the third is graduate degree.  But she's having a problem with this because she took classes outside of the system for her time as a nurse.

"Did you graduate high school?"

"Uh huh."

"Did you go to college?"

"No!"

"Then this should not be hard to figure out, should it?"

"But I did stuff..."

"DID YOU GO TO COLLEGE?"

The instructions are there, the answers are pretty clear...grah.  We have this conversation a LOT.
