I see what you did they're

Student: Can I borrow a pencil?
Teacher: I don' t know. Can you?
Student: Yes. I might add that colloquial
irregularities occur frequently in any
language. Since you and the rest of our
present company understood perfectly
my intended meaning, being particular

"Can I use the bathroom?"
'I don't know, CAN you?'
"I can piss on your desk if that's what you want."

"Can I use the bathroom?"

"Well, we only have a restroom, so no."

"...Oh, well then, guess I'll go take a **** on the principal's desk and take a nap in the restroom."

It's not even a colloquialism. The word "can" can be used either to express an ability or to request permission. It has more than one definition, and anyone who says otherwise is just being a jerk for no reason.

Yeah, no. 						****					 off you edgy twat and learn to speak your language properly.   
   
You're of the same stock that misuses the word "which" and "who" when describing objects as opposed to living things. I bet you also end sentences with prepositions. You think you'll get research grants or scholarships with colloquialisms and half-assed sentence structure?   
   
School prepares you for life. I see you're preparing exceptionally for a future in retail.

Once I asked if I could go to the bathroom.

In my school I went to before, we had these two guys who would ALWAYS "forget" pencils, and (nearly) every lesson they would ask for a new one.
They did this for the whole school year, and on the very very last day of school they brought all of pencils back to the teacher.

They had one enormous plie of pencils bigger then a baseball each.
