okay guys, this text might become a bit of a wall, but here goes.

our english teacher (miss herowane, pronounced heroin lol) is the dumbest human being i've ever encountered in my life. When i told her that it is 'an hotel' not 'a hotel', she cracked a **** fit and was yelling at me that i was wrong. I was right, but she still sent me to the office. that sucks. On the same day, she spelt 'invisible' 'invisiable'. i once again told her she was wrong, but she just said, "do you want a suspension?" i said "for correcting an english teacher on an english question? if you did that, you would get in trouble, not me!" so she says "okay bradley, sit down and be quiet from now on, okay?"
the next day, we go to the library to pick out a book for reading during class. i asked if i could bring my own from home because all the books in our high school library are 78 page teenager books. I asked if i could bring christine by stephen king, but she said "Is it rude?" i said no, even though it is a bit vulgar at some parts (not really). but she still said no for no reason. I asked why, but she still said no. just no, not 'because i don't want you to' just no. so i asked if i could bring another book, she asked which one? i said 'catcher in the rye', she said 'oh, whats that?' i realised i was going to get nowhere with this idiot, so i said 'it's a sex manual.' a blunt NO. obviously lol. i hate her obviously.
All my other teachers are idiots aswell. our music teacher is some idiot that won't let me play 'jesus saves' by slayer just because of the lyrical themes. i reminded him that it is a public school, and that our old teacher let us play any song we wanted. he said that it might offend some people in the class. he is a christian, and i said that it was a public school, so religious teaching is frowned upon. this didn't work, so i got stuck playing a song that he picked out for me. i played some 12 bar blues crap. boy was i pissed. the next week, we were using the computers at the school. i get up to get a pencil and he runs over to me in a huge panic and screams at me 'what are you doing?' i said 'getting a pencil out of my bag, calm down.' he said 'bradley, this is a very serious matter, now what are you doing?' i picked up the pencil out of my bag and showed him. then said ' i am getting my pencil okay?'.

this thread is very,very pointless, but i needed to vent.

It's not "a hotel"? Don't you pronounce the "h"? At least in English?

Wait...she's an english teacher and she didn't know what Catcher in the Rye was about?

dude just get over it. You can play all the slayer you want at your house. Also, as far as I know hotel starts with an H, Hs aren't vowels, so it's correct to say 'A hotel'.

It is 'an hotel.' It's an exception, just like the ten million other exceptions in the english language.
Nope. None at all.

you're wrong about the hotel.

an is used (mostly) before words that begin in vowels. H is a consonant

I think you were wrong about the hotel bit, but DAYUM. Those are some messed up people. At least your latin teacher (yes I take a dead language) doesn't tell you to **** off and then throw chalk at you.

If you say 'an otel' when speaking (which is now often regarded as distinctly old-fashioned), then it may be appropriate for you to write 'an hotel'; but most people say 'hotel' with a sounded 'h', and should write 'a hotel'.

Nah it is "a hotel" because you say it with a sounded 'h', unlike honour or hour.

Quote by spiff389
it is actually "a hotel"

no it's not. very stupid rule about english i know. say an before a vowel, like an elephant, but 'an hotel' is the correct way. i learnt that from my uncle, and he's a lawyer.
#21
That's public school for you. Take higher level classes and you get smarter teachers.
#22
You nids lessuns lulZ!!!

Actually, if the next word starts with a vowel, use "an"
If it doesn't use "a"

Example:

like, a dork, not an dork

an amplifier, not "a" amplifier

That's what I was thinking... But buddy, I'm pretty sure it's "A hotel"... H isn't a vowel...

The only time you say "An" before an "H" is an hero...

You're saying Mariah Carey is wrong?

oh and yes, i'm aware of the h rule, but i really can't be assed going through and editing that lol
#26
it's 'an hotel'! but it's very old fashioned. it's usually pronounced 'an otel though. so stfu anybody who says "no dude, it's a hotel". in the context the english teacher meant, it was incorrect. she said "i'm staying at a hotel tonight, i will meet you there." she was reading from some stupid boring as all hell book.

No you must understand you are quite incorrect.

^^ i edited the last post to include the context it was used in. if i am wrong, that's public school for you. and there is a teacher shortage in our school, so she could be a p.e teacher for all i know. our science teacher is an art teacher.

It's "a hotel" when you speak "an hotel" when you write it dumbasses.

"The form an for the indefinite article is used before a spoken vowel sound, regardless of how the written word is spelt.

There's a difference from being dumb and disrespectful. His teachers obviously don't act too bright, but giving them lip about it won't do anything but aggravate them even more.
Peace.

Who would say "Lets go get an hotel" anyway? It sounds just as retarded as it looks.
