Fuck'n teachers I tell you! They wouldn't accept good 1/216th advanced dot-matrix. And when I asked WHY they couldn't or wouldn't tell me. It wouldn't be so bad if there was a legitimate reason for not accepting them, but there wasn't. At least none that I understood. Other than to maybe sadistically make the students hunch over and write write write like a punishment. Well fuck'em'all. I still can't do cursive nicely. It was kinda like tryn'a make a Yugo win the Daytona, never going to happen, but go through the motions just to go through the motions.
One teacha told me it was hard to read. And I said like bullshit it is and started reading my paper. And I got sent to the office for detention for a day for mouthing back. The school I went to was so anti-tech and backwards. I hated it and couldn't wait till I got out of there.
Yeah, mine were too. One of the things I am kinda proud of was telling off a teacher and saying that cursive was going the way of the dinosaurs. Never bothered learning it. She got all high and mighty and said it was a required skill to be an adult. I said using a computer was.
Guess who ended up being a successful adult due to ignoring cursive and focusing on computer skills?
Take that, you mean old battleaxe.
