Hello Beautiful People…
Just when you think life couldn’t get any more insane…IT DOES, right? Well, just when you think students couldn’t get any more out of control, well, THEY DO! Allow me to paint the picture for you:
Class: Creative writing
What the students are ACTUALLY supposed to be doing: Listening to an audiobook and following along, while taking notes in their journals.
What the students are REALLY doing: Sleeping, complaining, one was actually following the rules, and, the last one, well, THIS STUDENT DECIDED TO LIGHT THEIR PENCIL ON FIRE AND THROW IT OUT OF THE WINDOW.
NO, I’m not making this up.
Yes, it really happened.
HOW did this happen? Well, like the old saying goes, I turned my head FOR A SECOND, to print out make up work for ANOTHER STUDENT, and, Student Fire decided to whip out a lighter and see what flame does to a pencil.
Naturally, I bugged out.
As I was going to alert my superior, Student Fire wanted to know why I had to go “tell on him”.
Like, really kid?
YOU’RE EIGHTEEN AND YOU THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO LIGHT A PENCIL ON FIRE? WHAT HAPPENED IN YOUR BRAIN THAT MADE YOU THINK THIS WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA? HM????????
So yes, Student Fire, as the responsible adult in the room, I’m going to go “tell on you”. But first, we’re all going to sit here in silence, while you find the words to explain your actions.
