This Coach Isn’t A-Cuss-tomed To Losing

| Learning | July 1, 2013

(We are having a lazy day in one of my classes in which most people are talking or catching up on homework. Another teacher, who also happens to be one of the school’s football coaches, steps into the classroom.)

Student #1: “Hey, [coach’s name]! Look at this. I found the ‘i’ in team.”

(If you draw out the word “TEAM” in block letters there is an “i” inside the shape of the letter “A”.)

Coach: “There’s no ‘i’ in team.”

Student #1: “Yes there is. See.” *points at his paper* “Right there.”

Coach: “You’re wrong; there is no ‘i’ in team.”

Student #1: “Look at it! It’s right there.”

(They continue to talk circles around each other for some minutes which only serves to annoy our teacher, as well as the rest of the class, at having to watch his co-worker get caught up in a petty argument with a student.)

Coach: *leaving room frustrated* “There is no ‘i’ in team!”

Teacher: *under his breath* “Yeah? Well there are three ‘U’s in ‘Shut the f*** up.'”

Student #2: “Did you just say what I think you did?!”

Teacher: “If anyone asks, I’ll deny everything.”
