Keep that kid 50 feet away from the playground.

A student needed help with a word and asked the following question:

(Let’s disregard the fact that the term he was looking for was ‘baby-talk’.)


Before I could respond, another student shot up with this response:

      • I know what you mean, that is how my teachers are (High school and the teachers I had in Middle School). Most people I know never seem to use common sense, or never stop talking. In my English class, there is a boy who constantly talks. He is admonished repeatedly only saying “I’m sorry, I’ll stop”. My teacher then replies “If you were really sorry, you wouldn’t be talking in the first place”. He is once again talking 5 minutes later.
