25, I'll blame that one on the common "typographical error" people always seem to blame their own incorrect spelling, wording, grammar, punctuation and whatever else. But last time I checked, I was sure the quotes were after the period... Perhaps they noticed and fixed it or I could be wrong.
In America we do stuff like "this." The reason we do it is because printing presses could easily damage periods/full stops, but not quotation marks, since the part was bigger. Seriously, I think it's stupid too. The British way makes more sense, and I am generally inclined to follow it, since I'm a computer programmer, and the American way is ambiguous sometimes.
I think #10 is a prime candidate for an ass-whipping. Kids have TOO much power in this country, and this is why they think they can act like little bad-asses. Consider yourself lucky that you don't live in the Caribbean, #10. Down there, if you act up, ANY adult can beat your ass. With an attitude like yours, 10, you'd catch a beating every other day.
OP most likely assumed the patient was special after being bitten, which is a reasonable assumption if you're being attacked by a thirteen year old. Four year olds fight violently against shot? Not special. Thirteen year fights violently enough to throw a chair at someone and bite them? Most likely special. By the time you're thirteen, it IS unreasonable for you to commit assault, for any reason. If the mother wasn't aghast, the only logical explanation is that he's special, so he doesn't know better, right? right.
