Of people posting advice on the internet. I was searching around for a high school supply list (apparently, the US starts high school in grade 9. Where did the missing year come from? Are there only 2 years of junior high or something?)
Why are 10 pack markers recommended by people? You need them in ninth grade, you’re probably in art, and those need the 43-colour-brush-pen calibre “markers”. Pencil crayons for map assignments, perhaps, but usually you can pull that off with five colours (which I used pen for, since an outline style of colouring is acceptable).
And a graphing calculator.
Bitch, you don’t need a graphing calculator till grade 10 (When high school starts in Canada). I find it hilarious that the person who suggested this couldn’t spell, at all. And grammar was tortured and spat out.
Anyway, that’s not the inspiration for the post, since lots of people on yahoo answers are routinely retarded.
But this legit looking site was being stupid beyond belief.
“Eliminate the guesswork by getting a list from your child’s teacher ahead of time or waiting until school starts to find out what’s actually required”
Horrible idea. Besides, a high school student should be plenty aware of what they need. And God, here, High schools don’t even provide lists anymore, and dammit, you are NOT going to bother a teacher just because your brain is incompetent.
And, crafts? In high school? What?
