This again?

Jeez. I can't believe the whining of some people. "Oh no, please don't use red ink on little Johnny's papers. It's too stressful for him to get a paper back covered in red ink! Use blue or purple . . . something that will help him to feel good about himself!"

Um, hello? I'd think that the actual grade, the actual amount of writing on the assignment would have more effect on self-esteem than the color of the pen the teacher uses to freaking grade it!

Some parents just have too much time on their hands. Maybe they'd be better off actually helping their children with their assignments rather than complaining about pen colors. Then the kids might improve their self-esteem, eh?
