Won’t Take No Answer For An Answer

| Learning | October 23, 2016

(My Spanish teacher is generally disagreeable, but this interaction takes the cake. During class, she is asking random people a certain question in Spanish and they have to answer. I was absent the previous day, so I’m frantically trying to catch up on my homework so I can have a general idea of what’s going on.)

Teacher: “Señorita [My Name]!”

Me: *looks up* “Huh?”

Teacher: “Since you weren’t paying attention, this one is for you.” *proceeds to ask me a question in Spanish I don’t understand*

Me: *stumbling over my words* “Uh… I-I wasn’t here yesterday, Señora.”

Teacher: “That’s no excuse. Answer the question.”

Me: “I don’t know what the answer is!”

Teacher: *in a sickeningly sweet, patronizing voice* “Well, if you’re refusing to answer, I’ll have no choice but to dock your participation points for the day.”

Me: “I’m not refusing to answer; I just don’t know that answer!”

Teacher: “Then your participation points are gone for today.”

Me: “You know what? Fine!”

(The deduction didn’t affect the A I had in her class, but I was still mad!)
