    Sub-Standard Hand-Me-Downs

    | Danville, VA, USA | Students, Teachers

    (This happens when I’m a senior in high school. I’m sitting in Spanish class with a teacher I had in 10th grade, who took a group of us to France, and I have become friends with. A familiar looking guy who is subbing pokes his head in to talk to her. When he leaves…)

    Teacher: “I taught [Name] in high school. Now he’s subbing. I must be getting old.”

    Me: “Señora! I used to get his hand-me-downs. How do you think I feel?!”

    An Absence Of Intelligence

    NZ, USA | Bad Behavior, Teachers

    (Our lecturer has arranged to have a guest speaker for the first week after mid-semester break. At the end of the lecture we hear this:)

    Guest Speaker: “This is a smart class, [Lecturer].”

    Lecturer: “Most of them aren’t here today.”

    Trying To Keep Abreast Of The Game

    | Missouri City, TX, USA | Health & Body, Sports, Teachers

    (I am in PE class with my friend. Our coach is instructing us on basketball passes. Note that I am in seventh grade; however I skipped a grade and am generally a year younger than my classmates. I hate basketball, even though I am quite athletic. I am obviously very flat-chested.)

    Me: *throws ball badly to friend*

    Friend: *throws ball badly to me as I struggle to catch it*

    Coach: *walking to me* “No, no, no! That’s the wrong hand position! Where are your boobs?”

    Me: *slightly stunned silence*

    Coach: *guides my hand to the center of my chest, basically in between my non-existent breasts* “See? There. Now push!”

    Me: *more stunned silence as I push the ball towards my friend*

    Coach: *walks away, satisfied*

    (I was secretly thinking as she asked me, “Well I don’t know. Where ARE my boobs?”)

    P.E. = Political Education

    | IL, USA | Politics, Sports, Teachers

    (My P.E. class has had a vote on whether to play softball or tidy up the balcony. Most vote to tidy up the balcony, but the coach declares that we are to play softball.)

    Me: *walks up to him* “I hereby petition you to recognize the majority!”

    Coach: “No matter how republican I am, this is not a democracy. This is a dictatorship.”


    Student: “I will tase you!” *chases me with two fingers pointed at me*

    Me: *runs around* “Help, I’m being oppressed!”

    The ‘Heart’ Is In The Wrong Place

    | Los Angeles, CA, USA | LGBTQ, Love/Romance, Teachers

    (I’m with my friend at my locker, getting my books, when a teacher walks up from his classroom on the other side of the hall, and points out some graffiti that says “I heart Chris.”  I am female.)

    Teacher: *teasing and obviously just messing around* “Is that your boyfriend?”

    Me: “No, I don’t have a boyfriend.”

    Teacher: “Do you looooove him?”

    Me: “I’m gay.”

    Teacher: “That’s okay!” *he then flounces back to his classroom across the hall*
