Adults say the darndest things

Pilot fish at a health care facility is trying to help a woman who runs the daycare center for the organization.

And it shouldn't be a major task. "She wants to put their 30-page parent handbook on our website for parents to read," says fish. "I tell her no problem, all we have to do is make her Word document into a PDF and everything will be fine.

"I ask her to send me the Word document. She says, 'Which one? There are 30 of them.'

"I ask her why she has 30 separate Word documents. She says she honestly didn't think that Microsoft Word could handle more than one page of information because it would make the file size too big, so she made 30 individual files."
