When Words Attack

In my previous life as a teacher of freshman comp, I developed a kind of affection for the grammar mistakes all students make.  I had to, or else I would have become a bitter, angry person.

Massage therapy students don’t do too much writing, but I happen to teach two of the classes where a major final project involves a paper.  Sometimes, the errors are just too good.  Here’s my current favorite:

A student wrote about working with a woman who was a breast cancer survivor.  The student spent time researching the surgeries her client had so as to better understand what might be going on with her client’s body.

The surgery in question, according to the student? A double vasectomy.

Best. Mistake. Ever.
