It's often the same with Mrs. Gersen, except she's a full adult. She's just Southern -- they take a direct question as some kind of attack on them, and get all defensive-like. To get any actual information, you have to hem and haw around the question for a good 20 minutes and hope that they eventually let slip what you wanted to know. It's frustrating, but not restricted to teenagers.

Yeah seconded. I've been no further north than Tennessee my entire life for any time longer than a week, and don't encounter this kind of thing all that often. It comes from either recalcitrant kids or people who are just indecisive (which, admittedly, I've been both at one time or another >_>).
