The inept teacher quandary.

It doesn't take much brainpower to have to realize that John and Elly's 'support' as regards homework consisted mostly of berating their children about how 'easy' something ineptly explained to them was. Always and ever, we had moronic asides about how the children had a bad study attitude because they didn't want to spend hours on end missing out on fun scribbling what looked like useless nonsense that would never do them any good to placate a surly grouch who mocks them and can't be pleased ever. If they wanted that, they could stay the Hell home and be berated by their folks.

What John and Elly fail to quite understand is that certain people in this world are a public service announcement against being something or doing something. Usually, they fail to understand that their default refusal to look as if they can enjoy things owing to the dim-witted misapprehension that to be taken seriously, they must never smile or laugh lest the children think them a joke means that their children make a point of avoiding things that they could all like because their moron parents have to look as if things they love are a grim slog that no one can enjoy. When this mental deficiency is projected outward, it results in their not quite getting that the kids make the connection between the subject matter being taught and the clodhopper teaching it and come away with the idea that learning geography will turn you into a high-strung and punitive freak like Blais or a surly lardass like Warren.
