My daughter's math problem

Do you think I'm using my computer too much?   Take a look at the word problem my daughter just wrote for her class:
My mom started working on the computer at 2:00.  She ended at 4:00.  How many hours did she go on the computer for?
Answer:  2 hours.

If she's getting something educational out of it, it can't be too bad!

Funny! I'm surprised my kids have never written something like that. Of course, their version would be:

My mom sat down at the computer at 6:45 AM and was supposed to be off by 7:00, but stayed on and didn't give us breakfast until 7:20 and then we were almost late for school. After we left the house, I think she stayed on the computer all day until she left to pick us up at school around 3:00. How long was she on the computer?

Extra credit problem: Do you think she's an internet addict?
