English Patient: Trash Day

English patient G was with her group, breaking the 30-Hour Famine fast together. Afterwards, as she was taking out the trash, sister G turns and asks her students very sincerely:

"Who wants to take a dump?"

An English Patient is someone whose English is hurting.

Reallly? I've never heard that term used before anywhere besides here. Is that normal slang?

There does seem to be a pattern in the first initial of many of the "English Patient" submissions...

English Patient is not normal slang.

In popular culture, it refers to the 1996 movie of that title. The movie, however, is not about someone who cannot speak English, but rather about a medical patient who is of English nationality.

Here, this term has the meaning derived by Daniel Kim specifically for this blog. If you use it outside this blog, no one will know what you are talking about.

I thank you for all the people who qualify as English patients as they provide so much humor.

Yes, the term "English Patient" is just an inside joke, which was first coined by a person in the Korean Department of Gracepoint. Please don't try to use it outside of our fellowship assuming that people will understand.
