I have something I want to express and also an opportunity for you to work with me. If the following note resonates with you, I would love to hear from you and to be a part of your life (and have you as a part of mine) on a regular basis. So here goes…
student: can i borrow a pencil
teacher: i don’t know, CAN you?
student: yes, also colloquial irregularities occur frequently in any language and since you and the rest of our present company understood my intended meaning being particular about the distinctions between “can” and “may” is purely pedantic and arguably pretentious
Let me try this again, and again as kindly as possible:
When your teacher, or parents, or whoever says this to you they are trying to get you to think. Just like we have become a society of “I and so-and-so” instead of “so-and-so and I” we have forgotten how important our language is. Illiterate people tend to be poorer, more apt to commit crimes, and more ignorant to life. Learn your language properly, speak it properly, write it properly. And stop acting like every way is acceptable just because we don’t want to hurt each other’s feelings. Sometimes expectations make us better.

The mama’s all embarrassed, “oh my god! I am so so sorry they don’t usually behave like this, they’re good kids really…”

I’ve reblogged this before but I’ll reblog it everytime it comes up on my dash
The more I watch this the funnier it gets. HAHA. So cute!
