58. honor roll does not mean straight As it means As& Bs. Distinguished honor roll means straight As& Straight As are not that hard to get in elementary school, assuming you are in due to your lack of grammar.(:

I Stated that your grammar made you sound and look like you were in elementary school. The purpose of my comment was to state that it isn't that hard to get straight As till you are in highschool and start taking harder classes. I just finished up middle school with straight As and I took 3 highschool classes and even I admit it was easy. Highschool is harder, enough said.

KingGeorgeGal girl- I agree elementary is way too easy but so is high school and g.e. in college; the real shit doesn't begin until you begin working on your career (trust me). What I am trying to say is do not feel superior to others because your grammar is so much more 'intellectual', this is FML who gives a fuck.

silencebaby- As far as I know nowhere in Canada is that true . I'm sure it is somewhere, certainly not in Alberta or BC as was already said. I'm curious now though, where do you go? Or did go.

It wasn't just her grammar, I just don't like this girl. She annoys me and I'm sick of seeing her stupid comments. & I never said 8th grade was in elementary school, I was trying to say that if she gets As & Bs why does she talk like she's in elementary school. It really does not take that much effort to spell things semicorrectly and put some punctuation. Thumb me down, idgaf but this girl ANNOYS the shit outta me.

might be just Ontario... it's like that here. I went to a K to 8 school. It's mostly like that in the small towns though, like where I grew up. Cities have middle schools. The city I live in now has middle schools.

#67: 63 has a point. #63: Well said. ^_^ OP: Teach your daughter. Analogue clocks still exist in many places, believe it or not (this bit is more for the readers than you), and she should have that skill, if anything as proof of her intelligence (?). Goodnight. (:

f that everyone who defends digital clocks...you all probably do know how to read analogue clocks. I have all digital clocks in my school but I still know how to freaking read an analogue clock! I'm 14 and in the honor roll too... it's not that hard and all of you know it! granted she might have never been taught because once you learn it's pretty hard to forget...

Reply

There are tons of analogue clocks at my school, pretty much every classroom has one. EVERYONE I know that isn't a toddler can read an analogue clock. So, if you can't read one, then you might need some mental help because everyone was taught how to read one and they aren't rare.

honey I'm in high school with 4 college courses along with honor roll. u dnt know hard till u are in ap classes. they are stricter on you than college really is.

I assume the clock was analog... that's not a big deal, you see them around often plus maybe your daughter was just having a bad day. However if it was digital and she couldn't tell the time then she's in trouble. :P

272, first off you can spell it either way, as "honor" or as "honour." I remember my certificate saying "Academic Honour Role," so... Also, at my old school it went from kindergarten to 8th grade, and we called it elementary school. It's different everywhere.

280, high school college classes aren't that difficult. I saw them as a slight waste of my time because it seemed as though we went over the exact same things over and over again... and in my new school district AP classes are just blow off classes because they have you do much less work than the normal classes. I'm not saying that you're lying, I'm just saying I don't see the difficulties you say you see; maybe my school district is just backwards in everything...

389: Why does everyone feel the need to use improper grammar. It doesn't take that much effort to make it so you have grammar that people can understand . Half the comments 58 has on here I can barely understand.

holy crap im 14 and its not hard at all to read a regular non digital clock,most people my age are just too stupid and lazy because its "not cool" and they worry more about things that dont matter in life like texting cuz they wanna be "cool" and dont have any common sense on what matters cuz they cant live without technology and if it all dissapeared all of the sudden probably 85% of kids would die.

280: I am also in all college and AP classes in high school. It's not that difficult to keep straight A's. If you find it difficult, you might want to try using proper grammar when typing. It might help. If you think that I'm just a nerd with no life, I can promise you that you are COMPLETELY incorrect. I do track, Drill Team, dance in a studio, and babysit which takes up most of my spare time.

No, honor is how we Americans spell it. There are many words like that where we dropped the "ou" from words and just kept the "o". I guess technically honour would be right since it was spelled like that long before we chnaged it to honor.

Reply

203 - Please spare the Americans with sense SOME dignity by avoiding questions like that. Have you never seen "honour," "colour," "favourite," and the like? Words are spelled like that in other English-speaking countries. Sometimes, I really don't like being American. We're not all bad.

And cater to her ignorance? Why not just take the time to teach her? If first-graders can learn it, it shouldn't take more than an hour or so for a fourteen-year-old without a learning disability to get it.

As a 14 year old myself, the only real benefit to analog clocks is that they usually look better but in reality the whole system is just hard to read into exact minutes, so digital clocks are obviously going to be almost completely the only clocks in a few years.... I mean would you be embarrassed if you couldnt read a sundial? agreed the girl should be able to read a damn clock, as we learn it in Kindergarden, but I'm sure at the same time the daughter can do a lot more with technology than the daughter she fails at teaching followed by complete bewilderment at the lack of a skill she didn't teach her daughter years ago when analog clocks were actually common........

Reply

@40 most people learn this from their parents. even if it is part of the curriculum in their school, the parent still maintains responsibility for educating their child on everyday things like reading a damn clock. i dont care what level of school your child has obtained, as a parent you didnt get them there, especially when you havent bothered to cover the basics like this when they were younger. useless parenting, try actively participating in your childs education OP, you useless twat.

Agreed with 209— I knew how to read analog clocks when I was 3, ffs. It's pathetic to see anyone over 10 not be able to, and that's being lenient. Sure, digital watches are more common, but it's not at all hard to read an analog one. All it takes is a little common sense. Sure, you don't always get the exact minute, but if you're more than a minute or so off, then you need to re-learn how to read them. I'm glad it was a Canadian, though.. At least some people will spare us the "Americans are idiots" comments.

Wow!!! By 14, that girl should be in high school! 9th or 10th grade. That's something you should learn at a young age. This is just lazy parenting! You can't expect the teachers to do everything for the kids. They assume that by high school, you should have already learned to count by 5's. My little nephew is 4, and he can count by 5's (I don't know how old he was when he learned, but he is 4 right now)... The only reason I ever had a hard time reading a clock was when I was too far away from it to see the hands... Let's assume that that was her problem. Watch that parent blame it on the school. My daughter is in High School and can't read a clock, let's blame it on her teachers... and teachers can't do anything when your kids misbehave, because kids run the schools now. Beating up teachers and stuff. Even Jamaica stopped beating the kids... (But only because parents started coming in to beat the teacher that beat their kid.) Sigh, I remember when if you got beaten on the street by an adult, and your parent(s) found out about it, you'd get a worse one at home... Now little babies are threatening adults with knives saying they're gonna cut them, and parents just look on thinking, "aww, how cute..."

#178 - you know what? I probably WOULD be embarrassed if I couldn't read a sundial. It's not like they're hard to figure out. Sure, I don't have to use one to figure out what time my train leaves, but simple human logic skills should mean you're able to work out how to read one.

Idiot. You're from Canada, not the USA, so you really have no excuse for not knowing this given your country favours the Commonwealth spellings, along with virtually every other English-speaking country in the world. Don't be so arrogant about being so wrong.

Weird, analog clocks may not even be around in this future you speak of. I mean, I can tell time on an analog clock, but with technology nowadays, you don't even need to know how.

I studied to become an elementary-school teacher. Teaching this kind of thing apparently just isn't a priority anymore. I learned in first grade. Now it's not even a part of the curriculum. Sad.
