    A lot is two words.

    I see the fail, but it seems a bit nitpicky, no?

    A fail is a fail, even though this one isn’t particularly hilarious.

    WHAT!!! This is easy, it’s a letter from two annoyed teachers (Mrs Hartman and Mrs Stilley) in the school saying thanks to Mrs Fultz for coming into their classes and doing their jobs for them! It’s a ‘stop telling us how to do our jobs note’.

    Teacher fail…more like humor grasping fail!

    I’m pretty sure the teachers are thanking someone, not another teacher, for coming in to their classes and teaching the students about their (Mrs. Fultz’s) job. Sort of like when students bring their parents in to talk about their jobs and such.

    Either way, a teacher should know how to spell “a lot”. I mean, really.

    If the spaces between all of the other words weren’t overly-large, it could have been passed off as a really small space. Alas.

    No, it’s not nitpicky. There is no such word as alot. Only allot, and that’s something altogether different.

    As much as I like Gray’s explanation, it seems more likely, given the information in the top left-hand corner, that Mrs. Fultz is a pharmacist giving a talk to a class of children. Therefore it’s a genuine thank you note rather than a grumpy note.

    I didn’t find the fail itself amusing, but the handwriting (presumably one of the teachers’) is hilarious.

    fucking smilies.

    Not only is the “alot” a FAIL, but so is “3’s”… it should be 3s! (Plural, not possessive!)

    Well, at first I thought this was actually written by the class. Which means these kids are probably too young to actually grasp the fact that “a lot” is two separate words. Or is it not forgivable for first graders to misuse grammar? Before you answer that, why don’t you thumb through one of your first grade journals?

    However, if it was done by an adult, ’tis quite a fail ^_^

    Actually Leah, according to the Society for the Protection of Good Grammar, both 3s and 3’s would be considered acceptable because you have to take into account when you’re speaking of letters. E.G. you would say you got 2 A’s on your report card, not 2 As.
