It means CARBON COPY! If you want to cc someone retype the email with a TYPEWRITER using CARBON PAPER!

 

Oh, trust me, she went into the history of the typewriter. 

 


Thanks for this Scott. I can just picture it. That's teachers for you. And I know, I'm (supposed to be) one. Sometimes I fantasise about coming up with the weirdest explanations when students ask me questions. And I do on occasion. Especially with my kids.
Then again, I never cease to be surprised by how little students know about the Internet, emailing and the like. They're supposed to be fluent with technology, but many of them don't have a clue how to make a proper search, make sure they know what kind of website they're getting their information from and so on. See, my point above made involuntarily!! Sorry, at least I didn't take ten minutes. Thanks for the vivid image and laugh :-)
 

:-) Yeah I'm sure some of the kids really did need to know... and some of the parents too. But oof!
