Country Grammar

| Learning | June 6, 2013

(We are completing book work when one girl’s purse steadily vibrates across the floor. The teacher stands up and collects it, removing her cell phone in the process.)

Teacher: “[Girl], I asked you twice to keep your phone off. Your parents can come collect it from me at the end of the week.”

(She rolls her eyes and once the teacher sits back down again, begins talking to the boy next to her.)

Teacher: “Hey, you guys need to be quiet. That means you, [Boy].”

Boy: *sneers* “That isn’t proper grammar.”

Teacher: “Oh?”

Boy: “Yeah. You were talking to more than one of us, so it’s not ‘you.'”

Teacher: “Well, what should I have said then?”

Boy: “Y’all.”
