English Teacher Receives “Fuck You” Letter From Student, Edits It To Highlight Asshole Senior’s Stupidity.

Something tells me this English teacher at McKinley High School in Somewhere, USA, is probably “the man,” or “the woman,” because the response he or she gave after receiving a “Fuck You” letter from a presumably anonymous student is fucking awesome.

Not only did the teacher grammatically correct the shit out of the letter, making the student look like an imbecile, but he or she did it in a clever way so to avoid any punishment from the school’s administrators.

The teacher’s list of corrections is incredible, considering the letter is only a mere 101 words.

• Date?
• Formal writing should not include profanity.
• –> lowercase
• –> Run-on sentence
• Don’t start a sentence w/ a conjunction.
• –> (comma needed)
• should be lowercase
• comma splice
• –> Is the a better synonym for this?
• (capitalize “Wuthering Heights”)
• –> Underline or italicize of large works. Capitalize titles.
• (two more commas needed)
• (a smiley face is not appropriate punctuation)
• spellcheck “Sincerely,” yet another comma needed
• (write out McKinley)
• –> indent signature line

And the knockout punch:

*Please use your education appropriately. Proofreading takes five minutes & keeps you from looking stupid.*

In other words, the teacher pretty much said, “BOOM. You just got roasted, you high school chump. Fuck you for not taking your education seriously. Also, fuck you, because people like you make the world less intelligent, despite my best efforts. Good luck with the rest of your life. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”

Well played, teach. I feel like this comeback is on the level of Mr. Turner from “Boy Meets World,” and it’s common knowledge he’s one of the coolest high school English teachers of all time.

From what I can infer from Reddit, the teacher left the note pinned to his or her door for the whole school to see.

Nice move.
