HANDS UP WHO'S PERFECT

Do eny uther quiz authers get rude and nasty coments wen thay make a mistack in a quz au iz it jst mee?
I can't spell and I don't know which way is up but I do enjoy writing a quiz or two. And I do get polite and useful feedback which I appreciate. I think I even have my own private spell checker which is wonderful.
But - is it just me or is this the norm?

I haven't had any negative feedback like that, but I try to be very careful with my quizzes.

Your occupation says you're a teacher?

When you get rude comments you can either ignore them or respond in kind, or by turning the other cheek.
You can block the sender, (I tend to do that) or report the inappropriate comments. That is probably the 'civic duty' -- I've only done that 3-4 times in 2 years.....

I am a teacher but I try my best to hide the fact that I'm not perfect. And I'm talking about little errors like putting east instead of west which is easily done. I'd like to turn the other cheek but my fingers just don't listen.

I once gave (friendly) corrections to a quiz author and got a rude reply. Works both ways, I guess.

I tried a comment like that. They said "sorry you can't take criticism. Hope I didn't make you cry."

When someone corrects me, I always respond in a friendly fashion and try to build a personal connection by explaining I knew their mothers.

Is that a bit like, "I know where you live?"

I think he meant "knew" in the biblical fashion.

And if that works and I feel a bond, I confess their wife is downstairs making me pancakes.

That's cold.

I tell them "Don't worry, she's having a good time. She keeps finding new things she's never done before."

Joee, check out a few ... those with the worst reviews are either new, have written no quizzes or both.

Now about Smaug:
In class the teacher asked him 2 + 2. Counting on his fingers he said, "Four" proudly. Teacher said, "DO NOT USE YOUR FINGERS. Now, what is 3+3?" Again he counted on his fingers and answered astutely, "six." "PUT YOUR HANDS IN YOUR POCKETS," she said. "Now, what is 5 + 5"? Samug answered resolutely, "Eleven"!

One day at the end of class little Smaugie's teacher has the class go home and think of a story and then infer the moral of that story. The following day the teacher asks for the first volunteer to tell their story.

Little Suzy raises her hand. "My dad owns a farm and every Sunday we load the chicken eggs on the truck and drive into town to sell them at the market. Well, one Sunday we hit a big bump and all the eggs flew out of the basket and onto the road."

The teacher asks for the moral of the story. Suzy replies, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket."

Next is little Lucy. "Well my dad owns a farm too and every weekend we take the chicken eggs and put them in the incubator. Last weekend only 8 of the 12 eggs hatched."

The teacher asks for the moral of the story. Lucy replies, "Don't count your chicks before they're hatched."

Last is Little Smaugie. "My uncle Ted fought in the Vietnam war, his plane was shot down over enemy territory. He jumped out before it crashed with only a case of beer, a machine gun and a machete. On the way down he drank the case of beer.Unfortunately, he landed right in the middle of 100 North Vietnamese soldiers. He shot 70 with his machine gun, but ran out of bullets, so he pulled out his machete and killed 20 more. The blade on his machete broke, so he killed the last ten with his bare hands."

The teacher looks in shock at Little Johnny and asks if there is possibly any moral to his story. Smaugie replies, "Don't f#(k with Uncle Ted when he's been drinking."
