Student submitted: Well played. These guys are lucky they didn’t get the other teacher in serious trouble……and themselves sued. Definitely a point awarded to the students.
The following story occurred when I was a senior in highs school.Some back story to preface the hilarity. I sat in the back row next to a fellow class clown of mine. This class was notoriously rowdy and out of control, and we would often torture substitutes who were filling in for our primary teacher, who I presume was taking work off instead of coming and murdering us instead. At some point during the begging of the class, my classmates pick-pocketed the cellphone of a girl from her purse and proceeded to pass it back to me to “do something funny with it.” I decided to download a sex ringtone on the phone (which is only a woman’s moans during intercourse and climax), and turn the volume to max. I then passed the phone to my buddy who stashed it behind a book in the bookshelf behind us. Repeatedly throughout the class, we would continue to call the phone and enjoy our classmates laughter at the highly inappropriate sexual noises. Our substitute was wildly incompetent and at first thought it was us impersonating a woman making these noises. After about the 6th time, she eventually walked back between both of our desks and demanded that we hand “our video games over.” We showed her our empty hands and with a stone face, told her the teacher in the adjacent room (behind ours) has a habit of watching adult movies loudly during his lunch break (which was so ridiculous, I thought she wouldn’t buy it and our fun would be over). Surprisingly, this was a suitable explanation for her. She then proceeded to call the main office to levy a formal complaint against this teacher, as we continued to call the phone. The following day, our primary teacher returned furious and gave me and some others detention. Worth it.
I just got a call from a teacher in regard to the amount of SPAM she has been receiving. There are a couple important details I would like to convey before relaying the story.
1. We are out of school. She took the time during summer break to check her SPAM levels and place a call.
2. Not only did she take the time to make this call. She did it first thing in the morning. Almost like she was waiting for me to arrive at work.
3. We host our email through Google. A nice little company who, In my opinion, does a very good job handling SPAM. You may have heard of them.
Teacher: Hi IT Guy, I have been getting a ton more SPAM in email than usual
IT Guy: You have?
Teacher: Yeah, there has been a ton. Has anyone else had that issue?
IT Guy: Nope
Teacher: That’s weird
IT Guy: Did you give out your email anywhere?
Teacher: No, I never do
IT Guy: Are you looking at ALL MAIL instead of your INBOX?
Teacher: No, I am looking at the SPAM folder?
IT Guy: WHAT? Why are you looking at that? That’s where SPAM is suppose to go. That is why they call it a SPAM FOLDER!
Teacher: I always look at it. Usually there is only one a day. But the last couple days I have had 3 or so
IT Guy: Yeah…..SPAM folders are fun to look at. So let me get this straight, you routinely count the amount of junk messages in your SPAM folder, found an increase, and took the time to call me about it?
Teacher: Yeah, do you think it’s ok?
IT Guy: Hard to be sure. I will contact the FBI, you better call the Secret Service. I don’t know who is sending these dastardly emails directly to your SPAM folder but I will not rest until I find the culprit. So, for my notes……you said it was 3 emails PER DAY?
Teacher: Yeah, 3
IT Guy: I’m on it. (CLICK)
Teacher: Hi, I just wanted to check that our new group web page will work
IT Guy: What do you mean work?
Teacher: On the system?
IT Guy: The system?
Teacher: Yeah, our new web page
IT Guy: What are we talking about?
Teacher: I want to know if our webpage will work at school?
IT Guy: Are you asking me if you can view a webpage at school?
Teacher: yes…..our new one.
IT Guy: Yes. We have internet access.
Teacher: IT Guy, my grade verifcation sheet has different grades the what are in my gradebook
IT Guy: How is that possible? Those grades come from your online gradebook
Teacher: Must be some magic
IT Guy: Yeah, that’s it. Magic……let’s pull it up and check
IT Guy: Which grade is dfferent?
Teacher: This kid has an “A” in my book
IT Guy:It says “B” in your online grabebook
Teacher: Not in mine
IT Guy: THIS IS YOURS’!
Teacher: Not on my computer
IT Guy: ITS THE SAME BOOK, it is web based software
Teacher: Yeah, but mine is different
IT Guy: THERE IS ONLY ONE! I AM LOGGING INTO YOURS
Teacher: But it is different……..
IT Guy: Why are you not understanding this??? There is only one online gradebook and this is it
Teacher: Let me get out my book and show you
IT Guy:What does your paper gradebook have to do with this?
Teacher:I I’ll show you I have an A
IT Guy: Your paper gradebook is in no way WHATSOEVER linked to the internet, your online grading program and perhaps your brain.
Teacher: But I have an A
IT Guy: This is the dumbest converstation I have ever had.
