REMEMBER WHEN TEACHERS USED TO SAY…
Remember when teachers used to say, “Did you bring enough for everybody?”
Me: ‘My parents can’t afford a notebook for everybody!’
Teacher: ‘No, I meant your-‘
Me: ‘Or pencils. Come on, Mrs. Foresmo! Why should my folks be the ones who supply my whole class?’
Teacher: I’m talking about-‘
Me: ‘I have enough paper for everyone, but my own supply is going to go real quick.’
Teacher: ‘Feo, you know what I’m-‘
Me: ‘We’re kinda scraping by, why should we have to supply everyone else?’
Teacher: ‘THE CANDY! YOUR CANDY!’
Me: ‘My Squirrel Nut Zippers!’
Teacher: ‘YES! Your Squirrel-! …Your candy.’
Me: ‘My question still stands.’
Teacher gives silent hard look.
Teacher: ‘ “My question still stands”? Who taught you to talk like that?’
Me: ‘Perry Mason. It’s on right after Star Trek.’
