overheard

"Hey, wait, how you spell 'Los Angeles'?"

Our eighth grade English teacher (with a masters in Education, btw)
in the middle of the seminar.

i'm starting to think getting a master's really isn't such a difficult thing to do, considering all the idiots i know who have them.

Well, after all, "Los Angeles" is tough. It has all those tricky hidden letters and it's not like one is frequently exposed to it in print. Oh wait, that's not right, I was thinking of "sui generis." Turns out the guy is an idiot.

Embarrassing: While I always end up getting it right, I have to spell Los Angeles very carefully.

(And now I'm nervous I've misspelled it here.)

But I only have a bachelor's. And not in Education.

He should have spelled like I do: "El Lay"

Just saying.
