The English language is dumb...
The Setting: Boy Child and I working on his home work after school.
Me: ... actually that is the word "know".
Boy Child: No, no is spelled "no". I know that word.
Me: Actually it is spelled both ways and has 2 different meanings.
Boy Child: Seriously, how do they expect me to learn English is they keep making up all new rules?
Me: That is a very good question; just wait until we start discussing "to", "too" and "two".
Boy Child: English is dumb.
Me: Which ends in a silent "B".
Boy Child: Wait, what, why?
Me: I have no clue.
