Se Habla Mexicañol

Pennsylvania, USA | Learning | May 8, 2013

(I’m in an introductory Spanish course. We are working in pairs to fill out information about different Spanish-speaking countries.)

Me: “Okay, so the capital of Mexico is Mexico City and the currency is the peso.”

Partner: “Uh… what’s the ‘language?’ Mexican?”

Me: *thinking he is joking* “Of course, ‘Mexican,’ since it’s not like we are in Spanish class or anything.”

Partner: “Whoa, I was right?”

One Headache Deserves Another

MN, USA | Learning | May 8, 2013

(I’ve been having a horrible day due to a failed test, an hour of sleep, and a headache. I get to my Economics class, where I get along well with everyone except for an annoying kid.)


Me: “[Annoying Kid], can you please be quiet? I’m trying to work.”

(The annoying kid continues screaming and starts singing the school song.)

Me: “[Annoying Kid], please be quiet. I have a bit of a headache and you aren’t making it better.”

(The annoying kid starts yelling to his friend that sits right next to him, who yells back.)

Me: “[Annoying Kid]!”

Annoying Kid: “You’re so mean and uptight!”

(Finally I’m fed up and I grab my book and wack him hard on the back of his head. The room gets extremely quiet.)

Me: “Would you idiots shut up, grow up and be a little more respectful of others?”

Annoying Kid: “Oh, [my name]! Why are you so mean? You might have given me a concussion!”

(At this point, our teacher walks in.)

Annoying Kid: “Miss [Teacher]! [My name] hit my head and gave me a concussion!”

Teacher: *looks between him and I* “D***, I wish I had seen it.”

You’re On The Right Track Baby

| Sydney, Australia | Learning | May 8, 2013

(I’m a student teacher in a Year 3 class. Most of the children have just attended an Easter play run for the kids who attend Christian scripture lessons.)

Student #1: “Do you like the K-2 play or the 3-6 play better?”

Student #2: “The 3-6 play! There are less annoying songs.”

Student #1: “Yeah, the K-2 songs are really gay.”

Student #2: “That’s not how you use the word gay!”

(Needless to say, I was a little proud of Student #2!)

Be Sure To Copy The Right Copy

USA | Learning | May 7, 2013

(I am handing back test papers.)

Student: “Why did you give me zero?”

Me: “There were multiple versions of the test. You had the right answers to one of the other versions.”

Student: “I don’t get it.”

Me: “The answers to version A and the answers too version B were not the same.”

Student: “I still don’t get it.”

Me: “Is it possible that you might have looked at someone else’s paper during the test?”

Student: “Well, yeah!”

Me: “They didn’t have the same test as you.”

Student: “So I failed?”

Me: “Yes.”

Student: “But I’ve never failed before.”

Me: “Now you have.”
