Bureau of Jerks

My daughter’s third grade class arranged a field trip to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in DC for today.  We were scheduled to go in as two groups starting at 10:15.  Because DC traffic sucks(due in part to horribly timed traffic lights) we arrived a few minutes late for the first tour.  The lovely…
