I didn’t backpedal except to say that the parent was not a friend but a neighbor. Is that your definition of backpedaling, your dumber than I even imagined. Horrible that you have been able to hide out so long on FR. Class of 98 has been getting band lately at a huge rate. You folks are starting to crawl out of the woodwork after hibernating for years. Oh and so you are not confused......ANY PARENT WHO SENDS THEIR CHILDREN TO PUBLIC SCHOOL ARE CHILD ABUSERS and should have their kids taken away from them. Clear enough?
your dumber than I even imagined should be you're dumber than I even imagined.
Perhaps the Class of 98 has been banned lately, but certainly not, as you put it, band.
And just for technicality's sake -- you misused singular subjects and collective pronouns (but I know how hard "their" is to get right).
Gee -- and YOU being the pro-education parent an' all!
