So I figured today would be an okay day. It was, or, it would have been, had my english teacher not completely ruined my day, probably my entire week.
We were reading Hansel and Gretel, we were doing a fairytale assignment, but first, he was going to demonstrate what it was we were supposed to do. We had reached the point where the stepmother suggests to leave the children in the forest to die, and Mr. Rutter pipes up,"He has no spine, he just needs to beat her for saying that--" Here, a few students laughed "--Sometimes it's the only solution."
And then, he realizes he's said something that's wrong, and he tries to clarify by saying, "I think if she's threatening to kill your kids, that's when it's okay to beat your wife."
I am so digusted, so angry, I've had a headache all day because of it.
I told my mom, she is absolutely livid. She's writing a letter to the school board. I refuse to go back to that damn class.
