The Teacher Is All Not Knowing

| USA | Learning | June 3, 2014

(I had just taken a test on the summer reading that we were supposed to do, and one of my answers is marked wrong. I get up and go to the teacher.)

Me: “Teacher, this question that I got wrong…”

Teacher: “Yes, what about it? You put ‘I don’t know’ in the blank. Of course you would get it wrong if you don’t know!”

Me: “But… the question asks what the main character is told to say when asked about his past. In the book, he is told to say ‘I don’t know,’ so that’s what I put.”

Teacher: “…”

Me: “Did you even read the book?”

Teacher: “O-of course I did! Let me see the test.”

(She pretended to deliberate, then marked my answer right eventually.)
