  1. Apparently it takes one . . .

    “It’s” = “it is.” “Its” = the possessive pronoun. As in:

    “Apple’s Mac operating system market share continues it’s upward move . . . .”

    What the hell are the English teachers of the world DOING with their time?

  2. Apparently all the English teachers are studying Mac’s upward market share trend and investing in Apple stock. Oh? Should they be helping kids? Nah…more important things to do.

    Sigh…..(and my apologies to those few teachers out there who are true gems. I am sad their numbers are dwndling).

  3. “What the hell are the English teachers of the world DOING with their time?”

    Teaching multicultural tolerance seminars and leading self-esteem exercises. The kids are ignorant, but they feel good about themselves.
