Teacher: *pointing at Student 1* Translate the sentence “I need a pencil.”

Student 2, sitting in front of Student 1: “Ich brauche…”

She trails off, having forgotten the word for pencil.

Teacher, trying to correct which student was supposed to answer: “Herr Schmitt.”

Student 2: “Ich brauche Herr Schmitt.”

To her credit, she realized what had happened immediately and joined the rest of us in finding it hilarious. The teacher, too.
