Couldn’t Wait Until The End Of The Period

| Learning | September 4, 2013

(I just started band class with a friend of mine who has been playing for a few years. During class I tap her on the shoulder.)

Me: “What this thing called?”

Friend: “Oh, that’s the pad for the key.”

(I proceed to raise my hand to get the teachers attention.)

Teacher: “We’re almost through with this piece, can you wait?”

Me: “No. My pad fell out.”

(The entire class goes quiet, a few girls giggle and my male teacher looks completely horrified.)

Friend: “No! No! She means the pad for the key on her instrument! It fell out so she can’t play!”

(I am so embarrassed that I don’t raise my hand for anything for a whole month.)
