Most high school seniors reach a point every year when they officially stop caring.
For example, after bluffing my way through an online AP Psychology course, I spent the entire essay portion of the exam drawing infinity symbols on the test booklet.
Looking at the timeline, this means I didn’t phone it in until the beginning of May.
This note, allegedly penned by seniors at an unspecified high school, was recently posted to Reddit after the teacher it was addressed to decided to respond:
Whoever penned this masterpiece forgot to include a date, but if this is recent then it would appear that kids are giving up earlier than ever before.
However, judging by their writing ability, maybe they should have waited a couple of weeks before deciding to mail it in.
This had more red ink than Enron’s final accounting ledgers. You knew they were off to a good start when they couldn’t name their teacher, and it only gets better from there. Their teacher rips the entire thing apart, and for good reason.
In the immortal words of Omar:
“You come at the king, you best not miss.”
Of course, I do have some issues with the overly pedantic nature of the corrections. Granted, if a student left me an error-ridden note telling me to f*ck off, I probably would have done the same thing, but some of these corrections seemed a bit unnecessary.
Conjunctions at the beginning of a sentence are all the rage in modern grammar, and formal writing should include profanities whenever possible.
Still a fantastic rebuttal.
