i would not and do not expect an exact answer because what i am questioning
is not something that would be normally needed.
[years ago, in 7th grade, my homeroom and english teacher told me i was
impudent. when i told her 'thank you' and class cracked up laughing,
she sent me to principal's office. because principal new me, even she
cracked up laughing when i told her what happened. while principal and
i walked back to the teacher, we had a very good and enjoyable
conversation. when we entered teachers room, principal told her she did
not believe that i was impudent and immediately transfered me to another
homeroom and a new english teacher. i got along great with both of them.]
