Today I tried and failed, with three different dictionaries, to convince our English teacher that the "b" was pronounced in "subterfuge".

Our. English. Teacher.

Well, she could be worse.
I suppose.
The intern from the local university didn't even know what the stupid word meant until she found it on our middle school spelling list.

Not all the teachers are so bad, though. You have to admire some of them. After all, it really takes guts to do things like apologize for making a test too hard.

Sarcastic? Me? No!

Uh, so I kind of stared at your entry, then my brain was like ..."No. An English teacher couldn't be that dumb." And then my faith in humanity died a little. :D

How can someone like that

How can someone like that ever get to be a teacher. Aren't they supposed to be like, at least, decent at their subjects?
