Can I just start by saying: YAYAYAY! We get Pinno back! omgsh I am so happy. A whole fretaking term without her...so sad :( Yes I know it sounds unnaturally clingy to want a teacher back so bad, but if you had her you would agree and if you don't there is something wrong with you:P The lessons to come sure seem to be promising, 'specially the last few weeks ;P
Boarders stop reading NOW
Another thing, I don't really care when the boarders ask for money. I really don't but it's when they become persistent that it bothers me. Like take tis scenario as an example
boarder: 'do you have any spare change'
you (while eating a chocolate): 'no, sorry'
ok when they stop here and move on to the next group, I'm completely fine with that. But when it progresses to:
Boarder: But you're eating a chocolate. You HAVE to have money. Come on donate to the chocolate fund blahblahblah
etcetc THATS when it gets annoying. First of all, why are you so persistent? It's kinda demeaning and undiginified to beg so much. Secondly, just because the person has a chocolate, doesnt mean they're rich. A chocolate costs $1.20. You dont really have to be a millionaire to afford one. And LASTLY, using the "you have chocolate" thing as a way of getting money by PROVING that they have money, is stupid because did it ever occur to you that MAYBE that's why they DONT have any spare change? i shall leave you to think about it :)
