Things you don't want to say.

A fellow trainer tells me that one of his students wrote this: "we would like the teacher to give us more aids."  Aid is an uncountable noun and so can't be pluralize.
I had a student tell me that she loved her father but "he was very strict and he molested me and my sister all the time."  I had a hard time explaining to her that she didn't want to say "molest".
