Some months ago a student came in late to class. She apologized and explained that on her way to the lesson after the break she had a little accident – she SPILLED (or SPILT) her coffee. She also admitted that similar incidents had happened to her before. We can describe such people as CLUMSY. There is another word with a similar meaning that we can use – BUTTERFINGERS – especially if the person often drops things.
I always felt safer when she sat on the other side of the classroom from me!
Do you have an amusing “BUTTERFINGERS” story to share with us? Go on, write in!
