Yeah, I can't stand it when people display an appallingly low level of grammatical/literary knowledge. I also wish I could be like Shakespeare and just spontaneously make up words and portmanteauxs in the middle of a story.

Another girl in the class didn't know what concrete (something that is not abstract and you can feel/touch) meant. When we were asked to describe an orange, my teacher said to use concrete details and she asked "What does that mean?" Most of the class facepalmed.

Honestly, how in the world do you not know what concrete means?

In eighth grade, my homeroom and history teacher was Mrs. Valdivia. In history class, we went around the room, each of us reading a paragraph or two out of the book out loud. One day, we were reading about the explorer Pedro de Valdivia. The girl who got the first paragraph about him couldn't pronounce his name. Even though she clearly had no problem pronouncing that name whenever she needed to go to the bathroom.

It enrages me when people bandy about the term "cynical". Like random, about 98% of people who use the word don't know what it means.

I remember some girl in my 8th grade English class once asked "How do you spell 'we?' As in 'we would?'"

There was girl in my eigth grade English class that got mad at me because when the teacher let us help her grade some of our papers, she mispelled the word mourning: she forgot the u, thus making it morning.

Some girl in my Government class earlier this year didn't know what "discrimination" meant. My friend tried to explain it to her while I tried to decide whether to smash the desk in rage or cry in pain.

Funny how none of us have mentioned how angry we are about a guy who doesn't know the meaning of simple words.

Eighth grade girls are pretty much the nexus of the universe.

Well, February 13 just turned into the worst day ever.  I'm recovering from a badly sore throat, and I was asleep for about an hour and a half when my parents, who had been gone pretty much all day and night, called me upstairs.  The mood was very solemn, and my thoughts were that maybe my dad had decided to sell his plant business after all of these years.  Nope, it was even worse.  It turns out one of my favorite uncles committed sucide last night (look at the clock).  This may seem like a trivial reason to miss him, but he was the one who gave me my first can of Pepsi.  Now, obviously I miss him because of way more than that, but that was always one of my favorite memories, and he was always just the best.  It really hasn't hit yet...I guess I'll have to sleep on it.  This is going to be a long weekend.

I'm gonna have angst if I see one more FOR REAL thread.

Sheesh, it's funny the first time, but this is just ridiculous.
