    Re: put up with / endure / bear / patient

    Do you speak French? I ask because 'patient' isn't an English verb - it's 'be patient' (Fr patienter).

    A: How come you played hooky again?
    B: That class is so boring, make me feel sick.
    A: Even though it is, you are not supposed to play hooky.
    B: Oh, yea? Then tell me what did you learn?
    A: At least I learnt how to put up with [what? - 'put up with' is transitive].
    Or How to endure. OK, but rather formal
    Or How to bear. - also transitive.
    Or How to be patient.
