the letter e

it is pronounced e
if you have more than one its called ees

it almost became the letter folks got when they didnt pass a test
thankful i guess it didnt

of course if you didnt pass your tests or if you didnt get a passing grade on your report card
you could say well i got all ees
that doesnt sound as bad as if you got all fs

i thought about it as i listened to this video about the letter e grading

in the 1800s a womens college used the letter scale with the letter e as the not passing grade
a excellent
b good
c fair
d barely passing
e failed

i had a sibling who barely made it out of high school with a high d average
he now has two bachelors one masters and a phd

the e spread to some schools over time but eventually was eliminated from use

back then you could say man i eed that test instead of saying i elfed it
that just sounds better
seeing a big ole red e on a paper with a circle around it just doesnt look as bad as a big ole red f circled on the paper

maybe they should bring back the letter e
