A Girl and Her Gun: Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

My daughter is trying out for the high school volleyball team and this week is conditioning.

A couple of the girls, of all races, were standing around talking what the girls called ghetto.

The coach, "I don't care how you talk at home or school, here we talk like the intelligent young ladies we are."

I love a coach who expects more from his players than simply the ability to spike a ball.

My daughter has been on the JV dance team at her high school for 3 years. She did not make varsity so she decided not to dance for her senior year. The coaches she had were like that too. They were also expected to say yes mam and no mam to all teachers and parents. I was never concerned about any misbehavior with that group and it took a load off my mind. I am glad you have a good coach. Keep us posted if she makes it or not.

Awesome! We need more teachers/coaches who hold our kids to a higher standard.

Then he should demand that they SPEAK better, not TALK better...

Oh wait, that was a knock on the coach...to be fair the story was relayed by my 14 year old and I quoted him based on what she told me, so take that for what it's worth.

Usually it's me. I type fast, I edit fast and then I spend the next 2 days fixing what I notice I didn't catch the first seven times I read my post:)

I get a hoot out of people who interview for jobs using that type of speech. It's good that somebody is teaching them to comport themselves well.
