Carrot And Sick

| Learning | January 14, 2016

(My grade-eight class is on a ski trip. On the first night, my roommates as I are 10 minutes late for dinner. We have been waiting for about 5 minutes when a teacher we’re particularity friendly with comes to our table. Note: one of my roommates has a nut allergy.)

Teacher: “Okay, you guys can go and get food.”

Me: “But we came late. Shouldn’t the others who came on time get food first?”

Teacher: “Oh, I didn’t realize you guys were late. Sit back down for now, then.”

(We sit back down, and my roommates glare at me. A few minutes later…)

Other Teacher: “Can I have everyone’s attention, please? It turns out the carrot cake we have for dessert has nuts in it, so if you have a nut allergy, don’t take the carrot cake.”

(By that point, some of the students had already gotten their food.)

Friend: *to me* “Wow, if we had gone earlier, I would have totally taken that carrot cake. Your honesty saved my life!”

(Luckily, we didn’t have any more allergy-related incidents during the trip!)
