Should Have Read Up On It First

(In my freshman year I have a social studies teacher who has us play Pictionary to memorize vocabulary words. One student, the troublemaker, is lying on the floor and refusing to participate.)

Troublemaker: “I can’t play this.”

Teacher: “Why not? Do you need to go to the nurse?”

Troublemaker: “Yes!”

Teacher: “May I ask why?”

Troublemaker: “I’m dyslexic.”

Teacher: “[Troublemaker], you don’t even know what dyslexia is.”

Troublemaker: “MY DYSLEXIA HURTS!”

(The troublemaker proceeds to storm out of the room.)

Me: “Dyslexia doesn’t hurt.”

Teacher: “I know. Also, how does it prevent you from playing Pictionary?”
