(We’re in a math class where the teacher still has an overhead projector on a cart to teach. She has a water bottle to clean it off on the cart. She ran down to the office before class started so we’re in the classroom alone. It should be noted that NOBODY likes this teacher. Classmate 1 is a trouble maker, but usually is pretty harmless, just annoying.)
Classmate 1: (to a friend) Hey, should I hide the bottle?
Classmate 2: I don’t know, man. She’ll probably flip out.
Classmate 1: No way! It’s just a harmless prank.
(Classmate 1 grabs the bottle and puts in on the built in shelves under the windows by his desk just as the bell rings. The teacher comes in and sees Classmate 1 standing.)
Teacher: Classmate 1! Sit down!
(She starts the lesson, and she seems to be in a good mood. All of the class knows that the bottle is missing, so when she goes to grab it, we brace ourselves, but didn’t expect this.)
Teacher: Who has my bottle? (We’re all silent, and she glares at all of us. She starts getting even angrier.) Really? Are you really going to do this? Do you guys really think this is funny? Come on! Who has my bottle!
(We’re still silent, because nobody likes her and is amazed that she’s having a meltdown over this.)
Teacher: You know what? If you guys really don’t like me all that much, then maybe I’ll just jump out the window!
(We’re on the 3rd floor, by the way. We’re all stunned now and afraid to tell her where the bottle is for fear that she’ll give us detention.)
Classmate 1: (under his breath) You can use my desk to vault off of…
Teacher: Excuse me? Do you have something to say, Classmate 1?
Classmate 1: (leans over and grabs spray bottle) I said I found your spray bottle.
(Classmate 1, a bad liar, poorly denies that he hid the bottle and got sent to the office. While he shouldn’t have done it, this was not an isolated incident with her losing her temper. No matter how many reports were made by students to administration about her, we never heard that she was spoken to about her behavior, probably because she was a coach and athletics was most important at our school. I feel a little bad for her now that I’m an adult, but who says that sort of thing??)
