Spraining Credibility

| Ottawa, ON, Canada | Learning | May 10, 2017

(I sprained my ankle this morning, but because I have a group project/presentation to do, and have the final copy of my group’s project, I have to get to school. So, I wrap my ankle and get to class. Upon getting to class, and sitting down across from the teacher with my group to present, this happens.)

Teacher: “How’s your morning going?”

Me: “Eh, I sprained my ankle.”

Teacher: “Oh, my god!”

(At this, she ducks her head under the table to look at my ankle, with the beige wrap that is clearly visible above my shoe.)

Teacher: “So you did!”

(Did you think I was lying or something? I was very confused by this need to “check” that I had sprained my ankle.)
