    Plus one on stop the whining. When you get out of school you will get assignments to pay your way through life. You may not agree with the assignments, nor with the way you have to do them. If you don't do them as directed and on time, you may not eat.

    Oh, I already stopped the whining. I'm not proud of a C- but it's better than a D or an F. Luckily due to how good my grades are in my other subjects no summer school for me. :easydevil:

    RNST is right I have to quit posting here so much for a while and focus more on the books.

    I don’t know what the problem with a C- is? I gots C’s and C-ises all the time and look at me.

    Get yourself a typewriter... or don't they make them anymore? I wrote an English paper in freshman year of college titled: 'Food Production in Africa; a feasibility study' or something like that. It was about 10 pages long with all kinds of research involved. I got an 'F' on the paper because of a punctuation error in the title but still passed the course with a 'C'.

    That's not a bad idea Clyde. I actually used to own a type writer until my pops just threw it out for some reason.

    Are you sure the F was not due to the subject matter? Ten pages of that and I would give you an F for boring the hell out of me.

    Holy fucking shit !
    To the office for not having a pencil ?
    I recall an American studies teacher I had in tenth grade.........first week of school and I generally walked in at the bell.
    He called me out in front of the class......... " John , that's the third time you've been late this week.
    I'm going to have to give you a referral "
    The referral was the first step in the disciplinary chain.
    I told him " You're gonna give me a referral for being late ? You're Goddamned lucky I even come to your class."
    That was my last day with him..........I got switched to another teacher , Jim Warren , WWII vet and hell of a nice guy.
    We got along famously and I fucked off for three years and still maintained a B average.
    God only know what I could have done if I had applied myself.:bwah:
    But some teachers take that authority thing too seriously.
    What is she teaching you by busting your balls for a simple mistake ?
    Possibly , in her mind she is passing on the gift of responsibility.
    But the lesson I would take is " What a fucking bitch ".
    Now , if you walk in with no pencil every day , then you are probably a dead ass who had better hope that there are still jobs in the custodial or oil change fields by the time you graduate.............and I should say IF you graduate.
    But you don't strike me as that kind of person.
    So don't go and prove me wrong.

    I truly Understand.

    My kids teachers and school councilors told me that my kids were just average and I was being unreasonable.

    They all said that they would be lucky to graduate High School and find minimum wage Jobs.

    I thanked them for their input and then stuck to my guns.

    My oldest son graduated his university Cum Laude and graduated Grad School as Valedictorian.

    He is now a Doctor with his own Clinic in Arizona.

    My second son Graduated Summa Cum Laude and is now a Regional Vice-President of a Multi Billion Dollar Corporation.

    My Two Youngest are still in collage and are both on the Dean's List every Semester.

    Jimmy is a part time student and is a full time knifemaker.

    Jacquie is a full time Student and will be starting her junior year of Collage.

    The Grounded till next report card thing does - on it's face - sound harsh but the results are worth the extra effort.

    Just my humble opinion.

    I'm not arguing with ya much on it... I'd likely do it to my own kids... but, yeah, school bored the crap outta me. Did really well in math and science and usually history/social/government or whatever they called it that year. Usually did well in art (big surprise. heh). Fair in my second language... just never could get the hang of english or gym class at all.
