What do you expect me to do write he/she/it each time?
No; write 'they'.‘He or she’ versus ‘they’
...•You can use the plural pronouns ‘they’, ‘them’, ‘their’ etc., despite the fact that, technically, they are referring back to a singular noun:
●If your child is thinking about a gap year, they can get good advice from this website.
●A researcher has to be completely objective in their findings.
Some people object to the use of plural pronouns in this type of situation on the grounds that it’s ungrammatical. In fact, the use of plural pronouns to refer back to a singular subject isn’t new: it represents a revival of a practice dating from the 16th century. It’s increasingly common in current English and is now widely accepted both in speech and in writing....
And what do you teach? Scepticism (and I will teach it the English way as I'm from the UK) but you you seem to hide behind attacks upon others without ever giving anything of yourself away, like a sniper hiding in the bushes.
My personal circumstance is none of your goddamn business.
You will be heard, then why the icon with headphones on or is that to drown out replies?
I borrowed the headphone icon from Buffy; it indicates the material preceding is a quote and the expectation is that the reader will look it up to find its source and applicability to the context.

The Buffy enjoys obscure pop culture references. When you see a icon--AKA "Buffy's Asterisk"--next to one of The Buffy's sign-offs, its an indicator that The Buffy did not come up with it but rather that it is a quote from a--usually obscure--source not of The Buffy. The Buffy does not provide a direct reference to it, because half the fun is in finding out where it came from.
Through the miracle of the Internet, Googling the phrase can often conjure the source up, but unfortunately The Buffy is old enough so that some quotes can't be found this way, and you'll have to ask your grandparents where it may have come from...
Right, show me where I skipped or rushed material or at least understand that when I said I'd lost sleep that meant I'd lost sleep? Lack of sleep is a fact. Along with hunger, thirst, exhaustion, overheating, noise and other distractions it can lead to loss of awareness.
Stop whining. Everyone has their troubles.
As for me not making a good teacher, how about you? From your reaction I'm not even sure you read the points I raised as you've tried to humiliate me and others, which is suppressive in nature, showing fear on your part rather than an adult stance aimed at encouraging exploration and knowledge acquisition. You teacher? Drastic fail - go to the back of the class and listen this time, not mouth off (How did you get on this site in the first place - you're daddy doesn't own this forum does he?)
