(untitled 134)

From an actual essay that I graded today:

Social Security Act
Also known as the Old Age Pension act, the social security sets part of your money aside so you can eventually use it when your old. [Optimistic.] will be using this pretty soon because he is way old, like twenty-four or something. Not to mention he wears a suit and tie, which makes him age faster.
For the record, I've never actually worn a suit to class, though I make a point of nearly always wearing a tie. I like wearing a tie.

That's amusing. I hope you pointed out that there might not be any money left for you to use by the time you are retired due to all the baby boomers using it up first. And the fact that this student used the wrong form of "your" in his essay.

Ties are phallic.

That's beautiful. Kudos to a kid with enough guts to right that in an essay. :)
