Good for her. Dave Patrick expressed his disgust at the whimpering from the defeated with this put-down.
BUT HOLD ON FOR A MINUTE. Do I not spend two hours a week teaching a mixed bunch of lovely Eastern European people how to speak English. Are they not unfailingly polite, and always grateful? Do I not come home from these sessions feeling they have given more to me than I have given to them? I also give guitar lessons. Two of my pupils are quite talented. One is from Lithuania and, apart from being musically talented, she has a wit and wisdom far beyond her years. She has a sharp tongue, and does not suffer fools gladly. The other is from Latvia, and she has a smile which could melt icebergs. She plays and sings like an angel, and how she puts up with an elderly has-been as a teacher, I simply don't know. Both of these young ladies, with a young local lad, will be performing on May 18th, at our International Children's Festival. Trust me. They will be awesome.
