You know how I don't swear? (Okay, MAYBE twice a year or so, if I'm honest). Well, wouldn't you figure my kids wouldn't either?
WELL, evidently, NOT SO.
Sarah got flagged online by one of her teachers for INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT on her website. I.E. SWEARING.
My little girl. Oh. My. Gosh. I'm thinking, "She just turned 12 and look what happens!" At the same time, I just don't get it. I've never heard her swear. And then I think..."The minister's kids... they are always the ones... why, oh WHY didn't I marry an accountant?"
When I managed to close my gaping mouth, I read the teacher's comment:
"Heck no is not appropriate. Is that what you would want your grandmother to read or even perhaps Mr. Dunlevy (principal) tomorrow morning? Read the rules again. Clean it up."
That's right. She said, "HECK NO." That's all. And now she needs to, "CLEAN IT UP."
And the funny part is that I say that all the time. I consider it more of an exclamation than a curse. And trust me, grandma says worse. She wouldn't even blink over a "heck no."
In what circles is HECK NO considered swearing? Really, I'm curious. Because I'm sort of starting to wonder if I've just entered "redneck world" and have NO powers of discrimination any more.
Is she not allowed to say, "GOSH," either? Because that fits the same rules.
OH SHOOT! OOOPS! Would that be swearing?
Want to help me out? Just take the poll. :) I need all the help I can get.
I'd love to read your comments, too! Thanks!!!
