This is a question Ignorance

I once was in a programming class where the task was "build a calculator". A student did one with buttons 1, 2, 3 all the way up to about 25 and then ran out of space on the screen. We've asked this before but liked it so much we're asking again: What's the best example of ignorance you've encountered?

I work in an FE College...
... and a colleague and I were working together on the help desk in the computer suite.

A student rolled up and asked us is we had any of "Those, y'know, yellow sticky things?" My colleague held up and showed him a stack of Post-It notes and said, "What? These? Post-It notes?"

"Yeah, that's it! Post-It notes" the student replied.

"Nah.. " my colleague said, "We haven't got any of those." and the student duly returned to his computer.
