Just Wait (And Wait) ‘Til Your Father Gets Home!

I am teaching a fairly rowdy class of Year Nines (fourteen-year-olds) how to do average speed calculations.

Halfway through an explanation, one of the kids puts his hands up. 

Student: “Miss, I have a question!”

Me: “Okay, what’s up?”

Student: “If the shop is two miles away, and people walk at three miles an hour… why has it taken my dad seven years to go buy his tabs [cigarettes] and he’s not back yet?”

I lasted three seconds before I cracked up.

His dad still lives at home; the kid just likes to wind me up!
