At School

Сегодня мы размещаем материал от одной очень настойчивой "компании", которая специализируется на... спаме, а также, как они утверждают, на обучении английскому. Обычно от имени этой "компании" приходит до пяти писем в день (с различных подозрительных адресов) чисто рекламного характера с призывами "Приходите! Звоните! Платите!", которые, естественно, почтовая система отфильтровывает в соответствующее место (trash). Но недавно настойчивые "обучатели" что-то расщедрились и прислали небольшой сленговый "выпендрон", который мы подредактировали и предлагаем вашему вниманию.

At School (Slang Version)

Anne joins Peggy, who seems totally out of it.

Anne: You seem really ticked off. What's up?
Peggy: Just get out of my face, would you?!
Anne: Chill out! What's eating you, anyway?
Peggy: Sorry. It's just that I think I blew the final and now my parents are going to get all bent out of shape. I like totally drew a blank on everything!
Anne: Well, now you're really going to freak out when I tell you who aced it... what's-her-face... the one who always kisses up to the teacher.
Peggy: Jennifer Davies? Give me a break! I can't stand her. She's such a dweeb! How could she possibly ace it when she keeps cutting class all the time?
Anne: She's the teacher's pet, that's why. Besides, he's so laid back he lets her get away with it. She just really rubs me the wrong way. And you know what? I think she's got the hots for him, too.
Peggy: Get out of here!
Anne: I'm dead serious. Yesterday, before class starts, she walks up to Mr. Edward's desk and goes, 'Good morning, Jim!'
Peggy: Oh, gag me! She's totally gross!

At School (Standard English Version)

Anne joins Peggy, who seems to be in a daze.

Anne: You seem really angry. What's the matter?
Peggy: Just leave me alone, alright?!
Anne: Relax! What's the matter with you, anyway?
Peggy: Sorry. It's just that I think I failed the final examination and now my parents are going to get all upset. I, uh, couldn't think of any of the answers!
Anne: Well, now you're really going to be mad when I tell you who got 100% on it... I forgot her name... the one who always flatters the teacher.
Peggy: Jennifer Davies? You're kidding! I don't like her! She's such a moron! How could she possibly get 100% on it when she's absent from class all the time?
Anne: She's the teacher's favorite student, that's why. Besides, he's so casual he permits her to do it. There's just something about her I don't like. And you know what? I think she really likes him, too.
Peggy: You've got to be joking!
Anne: I'm very serious. Yesterday, before class starts, she walks up to Mr. Edward's desk and says, 'Good morning, Jim.'
Peggy: Oh, that makes me sick! She's totally disgusting!
