A Revealing Phone Call

| Learning | June 6, 2014

(I work in a high school where students are not allowed any phone calls within the walls. They have to step outside every time. Adults do the same to show a good example. It’s pouring outside and the corridor is empty. Teacher is holding a huge umbrella in one hand and her cellphone in another.)

Teacher: “I have to make an important phone-call but I don’t want to go back outside. Do you see any students around?”

Me: “Nope, looks like it’s all clear.”

Teacher: “I can’t get caught on the phone by a student. Okay, keep an eye out for me.”

(She opens her umbrella and crouches down to hide between it and the wall.)

Teacher: *talking on the phone, quite loudly* “Hello, this is Mrs. [Teacher]!”
