    Yes Nate, there is a certain satisfaction that comes from seeing someone who desperately needs it get smacked down.

    Can’t trust any teacher who can’t talk properly. No, English isn’t her class, but if she can’t pronounce her word’s properly, then what else is doing wrong? I had a hard time in school, had a hard time dealing with incompetent teachers.

    You know what they say Francis,‘if you have nothing nice to say,just keep quiet.’and some people wonder why I’m so quiet around them.

    Personally, I do not like people – in general – who correct my grammar. It simply means that one is not paying attention to WHAT I am saying, but HOW I am saying it.

    They are indeed often right, the thing is, they add a nice layer of shame to their admonishments. It’s just someone talking, that’s all. Myself, I tend to smile at syntax errors.

    Listen to Starfire on the Teen Titans, and you’ll see what I mean. Thing is – if Francis met a pretty girl and he started correcting her on her grammar, he’d be striking out, big time.

    As for Mrs. Godfrey, I don’t think she’s a very good teacher. She makes a very good tyrant – she seems to care more about discipline rather than teaching. I’ve seen strips where Nate and his classmates do something RIGHT, and they are left unrewarded. Do the tiniest thing WRONG, and they are swiftly punished with detention.

    Like Nate, Francis, Gina and all the other youth of today, Mrs. Godfrey needs to learn some soft skills….
    ….and maybe be a tad kinder.

    But hey, that’s just me.

    Incompetence? Learning disability on your side, maybe. Words for the plural, not word’s (possessive).

    First time Godfrey does something to please Nate — albeit unintentionally!

    It’s an “uh” sound either way, so unless cartoon characters can see the word bubbles, it would not be possible for him to tell whether she was spelling it with an e or an o…

    It is rude to correct a teacher’s grammar, but they really should know how to say the word.

    Actually “ain’t” is very widely used. It isn’t a corruption, simply an obsolete contraction of aren’t. From Mirriam Webster

    Origin of AIN’T
    contraction of are not
    First Known Use: 1749

    It later changed to aren’t. So it is not wrong, simply outdated.

    Learn to pick your battles kid, and when you talk about something else than your teacher – its not one of them.
