Teacher has brilliant response to student’s profane letter

I think I would do this, except the line added at the bottom, in which she suggests that proofreading “keeps you from looking stupid,” could cause her a bit of trouble.

An English teacher got a nasty note from a student. The letter tells the teacher, after some profanity that, “I’m pretty much out.” It was taped to the door of the classroom, according to a posting on Reddit.

The 101-word letter can be difficult to read. It is full of grammatical and spelling errors. How did the teacher respond? By correcting all of the student’s mistakes.

The teacher went through and sliced and diced the letter in red marker, noting everything from not having a date to not indenting the signature line to a comma splice.

And at the bottom, the teacher had one last smack down for the student by writing: “*Please use your education appropriately. Proofreading takes five minutes & keeps you from looking stupid.*”

Perfect.

See the letter below. Note: Some readers might find some of the language offensive.
