It's Friday afternoon and Miriam picks up her 5 year old daughter Esther at the end of her first week at primary school. When they get home, Miriam asks Esther, "Well, bubbeleh darling, how was your first week at your lovely new school? Was it as nice as mommy told you it would be?"
"No, mommy," replies little Esther, looking very serious, "no it was not!"
"Oh my poor wonderful darling," says Miriam sadly, "why didn't you enjoy yourself?"
Little Esther replies, "Well mommy, I think I'm just wasting my time going to school."
"Why is this, my beautiful princess?" asks Miriam.
"Because, mommy," replies little Esther, "I can't read or write at all. I'm afraid this school thing just isn't for me."
