      imagine the reverse of the situation
      that same woman instructing you on how to invite someone on a date
      >her: "okay now tell her a compliment"
      >you: "i don't get it. how do i come up with a compliment"
      not so funny now huh?
      fricking idiot
      and now after being an embarrassment of a teacher for God knows how long you come here and invite us to laugh at the lmao dumb b***h doesn't know how computer works xd
      well guess what
      i'm not laughing
      i'm rolling my eyes you cringey troglodyte
      go take your dumbass anecdotes to reddit
      how pathetic it is that your last refuge of feeling superior is an anonymous tech nerd forum with like 20 people

      fricking this

          not to mention the absolutely plethora of real-world analogies that you could use
          >see the clipboard is like your pocket. you put something in there and it stays there, but then later you can bring it out
          just face it, you're not cut out to be a teacher
          do not ever have kids, you hear me?

          test failed xd

            On Linux it's not some secret key command, we just click an icon in the system tray to see the clipboard history.

            that sounds like something that's unique to a specific distribution/DE

      i like that article.
      specifically the part about how every issue they have after you fix something is automatically assumed to be your fault.
