In response to one of my classmates' comments, a teacher just said,
"Well, the way you described it, even though it was imprecise and colloquial..." and went on to tear her apart. She started nodding as he explained, and he stopped to say, "does this actually make sense to you or are you just pretending so I'll move on to someone else?"
I'm thinking about giving him a "kindness begins with me" t-shirt as a hint/present.
STOP. This just in. Literally AS I AM TYPING THIS he just called on someone else and after the student's comment, he said "That is a true statement. A statement whose relevance escapes me."
