We Need To Have Words

, , , , | Learning | August 26, 2018

(I am in a social studies class. The teacher is explaining some very difficult words, and even repeats them a few times. After explaining them three times, she asks the class if anyone still doesn’t know any of the words she explained. Nobody answers, so she runs an oral pop quiz.)

Teacher: “[Student], when we talk about [certain case], which term do we need to use?”

Student: *obviously guesses* “[Term #1]?

Teacher: “No, that isn’t correct.”

Student: *guessing again* “[Term #2]?

Teacher: “Exactly. Do you know why?”

Student: “No, what the h*** does that word even mean?”

(Unsurprisingly, he failed that class miserably.)
