Confession of 20-Something Professional

I'm still new to this "on my own" thing, and have a confession to make.  I do not understand a zip about my 401K.  As much as Mint tries to "explain" it to me with graphs, I am thoroughly confused about how I'm making or losing money.  I truly believe there needs to be a personal finance class given in either high school or college (or both!) so that people like me and the rest of the working world can understand investing in an easy-to-swallow way.  Anyone else with me?

PS I also thought the "Confused Ikea Man" was super cute to use in this post.
