Most plugger cars are too old for that – and most pluggers wouldn’t remember to look anyway!
That’s not a fire – it’s a direct portal to the fires of Hell!
There is a critical bit a phrasing when confronted with this type of scenario. You never say “I just found out about it today”, because that implies it’s your fault you didn’t know. You say “I was just informed about it today” which implies someone else screwed up by not informing you when they should have. CYA! and wash your hands!
That subtle distinction between “political” and “mental”.
I don’t normally mind dark humor, but this is ridiculous!
All texts must be in complete sentences with correct speling, punctuation, and capitalization.
Half the time I can’t remember stuff long enough to write it down!

Take a picture of it and text it to the teacher.
I actually feel like “person-first” shifts the emphasis the wrong direction, if anything. It uses more words to describe the attribute than the subject, so you subconsciously give it more weight. We also tend to weigh the final word in a phrase more heavily (probably because of the adjective-noun normal usage). Overall it just has the stink of pseudo-psychology made up to make someone feel superior. Every time I hear it used I automatically assume the user considers themselves superior to the person they are describing. It just hits my ear as pretentious posturing.
