Overheard in the NYC subway today

As I was ascending towards the street from two levels down, I overheard the following:

Little child: "Are we underground?"

Parent: "Yes."

Little child: "But there are stairs! Underground doesn't have stairs!"

Not sure I understood this comment either.

While literally correct - since underground would consist of earth, earthworms, water, rocks, etc. - the child failed to notice the purpose of designating an area as "underground". We have a future tax attorney.
