    Hehehe

    The other day, I asked one of my students, 8 years old, why he kept on going to the bathroom during class? (He had gone to the bathroom at least 8 times while I was teaching a 1 hour class, and I wanted to know if my class plans were too boring.) His reply: To open the chamber of...

    off. It so so awkward! Manager's tone of voice shifted from "oh hey" to "I can't believe What I'm hearing" in about zero seconds flat, he pauses a moment to collect his thoughts before saying that it works out good because I'm off. I rarely call out sick or lie for that matter...
