Pleasing And Pleading

| Learning | September 5, 2015

(I am in science class. I notice the pen I use is broken.)

Me: *to the person sitting next to me* “[Classmate], have you got a pen I can borrow?”

Classmate: *yelling* “HAS ANYONE GOT A PEN?”

Assistant Teacher: “Do you need a pen?”

Classmate:No, [My Name] needs one.”

Assistant Teacher: “Well, ask for one!”

Me: “Can I have a pen, please?”

Assistant Teacher: “Say please!”

Me: “Um… please can I have a pen, please?”

Assistant Teacher: “Better!”
