    The Silent Killer, Part 2

    | PA, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Students

    (I’m a very quiet and unassuming person and well-known for being meek and gentle. The teacher is currently talking about serial killers for some reason or another.)

    Teacher: “They’re always the ones that no one expects. They tend to be quiet or masters at avoiding attention and often they seem very friendly at first. You always have to watch the quiet ones.”

    (All at once every single classmate of mine turns their head to face me.)

    Me: “I am not a serial killer!”

    Teacher: “Okay, guys, maybe you don’t always have to watch the quiet ones…”

    (I and two of my friends were working on a program for a class project. After spending several hours failing to get something to work, I suddenly say:)

    He Must Have A Lot On His Plate

    | LA, USA | Extra Stupid, Students

    (I run the transportation for a large university. I employ some of the best and smartest student workers  and they’ve seen a lot of odd things. A student needs to register his car to park on campus. A student worker is creating the account when the following exchange happens:)

    Student Worker: “I need the license plate number.”

    Student: “What?”

    Student Worker: “The number off the license plate.”

    Student: “My car won’t fit in the building.”

    Student Worker: “The number of the plate.”

    Student: *relieved* “Oh, okay. Because I wouldn’t have been able to fit my car into the building.”

    Student Worker: “..”

    (This is a college student. Be afraid. Be very afraid of the future!)

    Teach One Selfie

    | WI, USA | Language & Words, Students, Technology

    (I am the teacher. I walk into the hallway to see a student taking a photo of herself with her cell phone.)

    Me: “Selfie generation.”

    Student: “It’s not a selfie; it’s SnapChat.”

    Me: “What is the definition of selfie?”

    Student: “I don’t know.”

    Me: “A photo taken of oneself.”

    Student: “Oh… I guess it’s a selfie, then.”

    The Guinea Pig Wasn’t Fast (Food) Enough

    | OK, USA | Food & Drink, Students

    Spanish Teacher: “In some countries, like Peru, people eat cui. Does anyone know what that is? It’s guinea pig!”

    Classmate: “Why don’t they just eat McDonalds?”
