OT to thread but relevant to your post, Static:

After 3 years working as an in-class interpreter for a deaf student I realised that I wasn't cut out to become an actual teacher ... too many screwball parents to deal with.

So now I teach adults in college, and while some of them are clearly 'broken-assed', as you say, at least none of them has sicced their screwed-up parents on me yet! (One less layer of nonsense to deal with ... and if you swear in class, it isn't the end of the world!)

So ... my hat is off to you for being able to do this job.

(Yeah, I'm also prez of our local PTA at our kids' school because most of these annoying-parent-types can't be bothered actually to get involved in a useful way or anything ... they just like to harp at the teachers and give them a bad time.)

Cheers,
Annik

Could you please just make it stranger? Stranger. Odder. Could be weirder. More bizarre. How about uncanny?


"You'll go to a very special hell. A place reserved for child molesters and...

...people in the U-scan express checkouts with a full cart and then WRITE A CHECK!

...the Alliance...grr!

...bounty hunters who are floating in space

...people who dismiss Firefly without ever watching it

...stores that post hours but then always close 15 minutes (or more!) before closing time

...people who have to practically dead stop to turn right into a driveway or parkinglot

...people who shoot me

...pilots who argue and use up all my air

...parents who won't discipline their children and then tell me how to discipline mine

...people who think society owes them something

...websites that don't (or won't) promote Firefly and/or Serenity

...the critics who will try and call Serenity a Star Wars ripoff

...people who shoot people on my crew

...people who pee in the pool

...people who incessantly 'click' their pens or rap their teeth with a pen

...Captains that get us in bar fights every U-day.

...people who can't play a game because it is fun

...Mercenaries who don't have the guts to stab me in the back to my face

...anyone who wears blue latex gloves (can't be too careful you know)

of course, to finish my personal list...
...anyone who takes lists like these seriously."



"Use of a sw-what?"

Browncoats, rise again and promote Firefly/Serenity!

OH YES! Quick, go to this link if you haven't already -

Bob the Angry Flower's Quick Guide to the Apostrophe, You Idiots:

http://www.angryflower.com/aposter.html

And then check this report from Bob, who got a personal note from Joss Whedon at Comic Con! (Scroll down about 2/3 of the way through his July 27 posting to see the note):

Isn't it amazing what a small verse it is? I can relate mis-used apostrophes to Joss Whedon in one quick link!

...customers who know the time the store closes but show up five minutes later begging to be allowed in

...customers who know the store is closed but continue to shop

Sorry couldn't resist, retail is slowly getting to me (and I really shouldn't add to lists involving the special hell after getting home from work )
