Aren't we all?

Had someone come and do a survey from the ABS a couple of months 
before the census re computers and their usage in the home.  She got 
to the question of "How many computers do you have?".  I responsed by 
asking "In regular use or not?"  That stumped her. She finally 
decided that she wanted to know the number of computers whether they 
were in use of not, working or not. So when I answered 7 (I actually 
forgot two), she commented that she had never come across someone 
with that many computers before....
