Oh, I just remembered something from English literature class today. The teacher - who, by the way, is crap - asked us if we thought Fitzgerald's description of Gatsby and his life was "vague". And, I kid you not, a girl put up her hand and trilled "Sir, what's vague mean?" I shared an eye roll with my bestie and then threw my head down on the table. How are these people allowed to do AS English lit? So cray cray. Also, she didn't know what "retrospective" meant - perhaps a little more acceptable. Then, to top it all off, her best friend was asked to analyse a sentence; "May in Ayemenem was a long, brooding month". She said "Well, sir, like, I understand about it being hot and humid and long, but like... I don't get why it says about wanting to have kids? Like, brooding..." Facepalm. She thinks "brooding" means wanting to have children. Sorry, rant over!
|Yep, nice one, George!|
