Giving The Teacher The One-Finger Salute

| Learning | March 18, 2015

(I’m in fifth grade and my regular teacher is out sick. We end up getting a substitute that turns out to be an obnoxious know-it-all.)

Teacher: *holding up her hand with all fingers including her thumb extended* “How many fingers am I holding up?”

Friend: “Five.”

Teacher: “No, it’s four fingers.”

Me: “But I think we all see five fingers being held up.”

Teacher: “A thumb is not a finger. You guys must not be very smart.”

(At this point we are all seriously pissed off.)

Me: *holds up middle finger* “How many fingers am I holding up?”

(I made a lot of friends that day.)
