English expression: That’s beside the point!

Dialogue

Stephen

: Hey Michael; get over here! How was today’s test?
Michael: As usual; I blew it! I told you French is just over my head.

Stephen: If you didn’t cut class frequently, you’d do better. Above all, you’re always messing around and slacking off. No wonder!

Michael: In short; I can’t stand the teacher. She takes side and favors Linda over others. That’s not fair.

Stephen: That’s beside the point! Why don’t you study hard and turn the tables on them? Then, we’ll see if she’s unfair.

Michael: Oh! My stomach hurts; I’m gonna throw up.

    @Jack actually we do talk like this. That is why I share them because a lot of people tell me they want to sound more native. So I always share these cus native Americans English speakers use the expressions everyday
