Can't compute

13th October 1995 at 01:00
While completing our Form 7 responses, we fed into the computer the fact that we have 33 and 34 children in some of the Year 7 classes. The computer refused to accept this information and replied: "Error. The entries in any box in classes as taught by one teacher is greater than 30." I wish the Government had as much sense as our computer programmers!
