(One of my classmates is small and has a high-pitched, sort of “cutesy” voice. She’s called on to answer a question. The answer is “no”.)
Classmate: *normal voice* “No.”
Math Teacher: *makes a “louder!” gesture with his hands*
Classmate: “Um… NO!”
Everyone: *starts laughing at how aggressively she shouted.*
(My math teacher has hair that sticks up just a little bit, maybe an inch or so. We’re having a normal class when this happens.)
Other Teacher: *bursts in randomly and points at [Math Teacher]* “How tall are you?”
Math Teacher: “7 feet, 10 inches” *He’s obviously not 7 feet and 10 inches tall…*
Other Teacher: “That is a lie!”
Math Teacher: “Fine, I’m [actual height].”
Other Teacher: “Is that with or without the hair?”
Classmate: “[Math Teacher], my hair is better than yours!”
Class: *laughs harder*
(The other teacher then just walked back into his classroom and our teacher acted like nothing happened.)
(We are playing Kahoot, an interactive quiz game, in class. Unfortunately, the teacher’s laptop is dead and so we are using a touchscreen TV to host the game. The TV is old, so sometimes it refuses to accept user input for a few minutes. We are in the middle of a game when this happens:)
Teacher: Why is the next button not working?
Student #1: Here, let me try it.
(Student #1 is also unable to make it work. Suddenly, Student #2, who is usually quite quiet, stands up.)
Student #2: This should work. (turns to TV and makes rude gesture) WORK!
(Student #2 then proceeds to successfully press the next button, and casually walks back to his seat while the entire class processes what just happened.)
I have recently enrolled in another school that opens next year. They have made a small error on the open enrollment forms and have me get one from my current school. I am actually supposed to fill one out from the new school. I have recently turned in the open enrollment form to my current school. It takes them 2 weeks to finally look at it.
One day in science, I am called down to the principal’s office to discuss the error. [Principal] starts off talking about how I am supposed to get one from them instead. He then starts insulting the school. Keep in mind this is a very advanced school. He starts claiming the director of the school is incompetent and how they will hire horrible teachers. While he is doing this, I glance at my watch because I was taking a test in science and I only have about 20 minutes left before I have to turn in the test. After he finishes complaining, I start by saying that it was a small error and I also mention how it is an advanced school that will also be taught like a college and all teachers require a master’s degree or higher to teach there.
Towards the end of my speech as I am leaving, I say, “You now, it would have been nice if I was told this when I got this paper… 2 weeks ago… from here”. Little does he know, 1 or 2 of the teachers are leaving to work there. Now I’m just waiting for karma to kick in next year.
(This story takes place when I was in 6th grade. I am kind of odd, and so I am teased a lot during math by the kids that sit next to me. One girl in particular loves to poke me and dump pencil shavings into my jacket. A few other girls are teasing her about having a crush on me because she always pokes me)
Girl #1: You obviously have poor taste In men.
Girl #: Yeah
Poker Girl: Ugh. And anyways, I don’t like him, (referring to me), I like [Other boy].
Me: Also, I am a potato, not a man! Obviously!
Whole table:*bursts out laughing*
Girl #1: What a straightforward answer!
Me: It’s true!
