student: can i borrow a pencil

teacher: i don't know, CAN you?

student: yes, also colloquial irregularities occur frequently in any language and since you and the rest of our present company understood my intended meaning, being particular about the distinctions between "can" and "may" is purely pedantic and arguably pretentious

I want to go back in time to reply this to every fucking teacher/professor, slap them in the face and take the goddamn pencil.
