Yes, that was a drama queen teen move for both of you. Allow your educators to educate you...don't make up your mind on anything untill you have all the facts.
i understand where you're coming from. video media can be really overwhelming, as especially are documentaries like that, so the teacher shouldn't have made you two watch it since it was causing you distress. he should have let you do a little research assignment instead, in the library or on the internet, on exactly the same subject matter, where it would just be rational black and white print instead of sensationalist propaganda. given how eager the rest of the class were to watch it, it is clear you two were not just making up excuses to get out of "work", and being the responsible worker and citizen respectively that she and you are, it is obvious that you two could have been trusted to work independently. i wouldn't worry about the effect on your grades, because it gets a whole lot worse at uni anyway if you want to do anything worthwhile from within the system. you will find your niche in a political movement. you seem intelligent enough to get high enough grades even after being penalised, to do whatever further study you really need to do.
Honestly, yeah, you where wrong for doing that. The work that you had to do isn't that hard, all you had to do was the work, write the reports or whatever, not that hard. The next part of this is that you didn't want to watch the movie. That's all you had to do. There was nothing difficult about that and you basically made a huge scene, so of course the teacher is going to get frustrated.
But then it should be something that your friend should speak up about. That is your teacher. This is the assignment. If she can't afford healthier foods, you should be a friend and help her out that way so she can pass. Let your parents know the situation, so they know why she's eating over at your house. It's something that you guys have to do in order to get grades or she's not going to get grades at all. If it's something that's really serious, you should go to the principal and talk to them about it. If they don't do anything then you'll just have to make do.
mh well if that's the case, you really do need to go to your principal. I don't know if you can but try getting a recording of it on video tape, either on your phone or something, find a way to point it where he can't see it, so that he can be caught with proof. I don't know if that would be right to do so in this situation but I don't know how bad the situation really is.
well, depending on what he said, you should go to the principal regardless. I'm sure that those cameras are only there for safety reasons, like if there was a school lock down or someone got into a fight..anything like that. the could look into those tapes and find what they need.
Yes, you're wrong. Why should he have to do a bunch more work when you could simply do what is asked of you to complete an assignment? All throughout life people are going to say no, and not quite as nicely as this teacher did.
Sometimes you have to set aside your own agenda and do what's requested of you.
Obviously she isn't responsible for the food served at McDonald's or the fact that it's like crack to Americans. (man, their fries are so good!)
"Flipping out" on someone doesn't bring them around to your point of view. When students become verbally combative, it forces teachers to become more aggressive. Not to, would cause a loss of control over the class, along with an end to learning. Perhaps you would get further if you discussed everything with your school guidance counselor.
It's admirable that you would speak up in defense of a friend. It shows that you can be a very good friend, and that you have a strong code of ethics. However, if the point was to put a stop to your teacher upsetting your friend, I'm afraid you may have "flipped out" for nothing.
Ok. So...... most people who are not naturally charming need a lesson but will never get one. Charms schools are a thing of the past. That means we all have to cut each other a ton of slack for our irritating behaviors. This is how.....Do not react. REpeat after me....do not react to irritations. Good luck.
Yes your teacher was just doing his job McDonalds is extremely unhealthy and its his job to warn you away from it.
Ok then your right in targeting your friend he was overstepping his bounds but consider this if he does this job he must feel very passionately about keeping young people healthy he let his passion run away with him but he was trying to help you. Still you were justified in getting angry with him.
As long as he keeps sending them up instead of trashing yours and filling it out. But make sure your side is justified. If a class of 20 is supposed to watch the video, and 2 don't want to watch it...... Is it honestly justified? What has he done in the past with people who have seen the video? make them watch it or let them do something else? Has to be fair and follow past examples I'd say
You are wrong you take your assignment and do it weather or not you like it.
Unfortunately that doesn't matter if he won't let you sit it out then just ignore the movie itself while doing your assignments, all that argueing with your teacher will do is lower your marks and yes they do that, yeah your right to stand up for you friend I had a cruel teacher myself at your age but theres not much you can do about it in the end and the consequences arent worth it.
Whatever suits you if you;re sure your plan will work then go for it.
McDonald's is gross. When you reach the age of 40 you'll see that.
Your friend needs to make her own lunch and put on her big girl panties and get over herself.
"since Mc donalds is the most convenient for her to eat"
These are your own words. Either it's "more convenient" for her to eat McDonald's, or she's too lazy to bring her own lunch, or "her job doesn't allow her to bring her own lunch" (which I don't believe at all). Which is it?
She's a teen mom?
Oh Christ. They're the stupidest ******* around because their parents didn't care enough about them or society to make them have an abortion.
And I've never heard of any job that "forces" their employees to eat lunch at McDonald's. Somebody's full of ****.
And there's also parents who are too stupid to educate their teenage children about birth control, and that includes the birth control known as abortion. I don't care how they got pregnant, teenage children should not be parents.
Bull s h i t, she's just pissy because the film shows how gross that "food" is, and she's butthurt because the truth hurts, and also she's embarrassed because it's been shown how stupid she is for having eaten it. The world is not going to stop telling the truth just because she whines, and you are a dumb little fool for falling for her sob story.
Any parent who does not educate their children about birth control, including abortion, has no business being parents. If I had a daughter, she would be put on birth control the very minute she started her first period. And then have the option to go off or stay on once she turned 18. We don't do teen motherhood in my family.
If you think abortion is murder, it's because your parents raised you wrong.
