I’m pretty sure Teachers blatantly ignore me

IT Guy: If I switch over the grading system teachers’ gradebooks will be unavailable for the rest of the day.  Are you OK with that?

Teacher: Yep

IT Guy: Are you sure?  None of the teachers will be able to make any changes till tomorrow? You are cool with that?  I can not switch it back till tomorrow.

Teacher:  Yep, no problem.

IT Guy: Ok, I will make the switch.

(12 minutes later the phone rings)

Teacher: I am trying to access my gradebooks and it said they are not available.  What’s wrong??????

IT Guy: Are your serious?  We just had this converstation like 10 minutes ago. 

Teacher: We did?  How come I can’t see my gradebooks?

IT Guy: I turned them off. I JUST TOLD YOU THAT!

Teacher: Oh, can you turn them back on? 

IT Guy: No

Teacher: But, I NEED them now.

IT Guy: I told you can not do that until tomorrow and you said it was fine.

Teacher: But I didn’t need them then……now I do.

IT Guy: My apologies.  I don’t think I did a very good job explaining this to you the first time.  Tell you what, grab some colored chalk and meet me in room 205. I will see if I can diagram the meaning of “Stupid” and “NO” for you in pictures. (Click)

Another Final Exam Problem

Teacher: Where are my Final Exams?

IT Guy: I didn’t receive them.  Did you name your column FINAL?

Teacher: Of Course.

IT Guy: Of Course?   I think I will check……(opens up gradebook)

Teacher: See there it is….

IT Guy:  You are correct.  It does say FINAL…unfortunately you decided to add “EX” to the end

Teacher: So what…..it still says FINAL

IT Guy:  IT CAN ONLY SAY FINAL!  You can’t add letters to satisfy some fetish you have to screw things up.

Teacher:  Why does it matter?

IT Guy: I don’t know.  I didn’t build it.  Why is it so hard to follow a set of directions that has 3 steps? I seriously believe you are screwing this up on purpose?  Otherwise your college degree is fake…….

PE Teacher Explains International Politics

Student submitted Story:  

A bit of background first, essentially this guy was “teaching” class one day when some girl piped up with a question about war and why we would enter into one. This is what he said:

Teacher: “its like this, say a larger country like China started to pick on a smaller country like Puerto Rico. The U.S. would go to war to defend the smaller country.”

Student: Raising my hand. “ummm Puerto Rico is U.S. Territory, if China attacked it we would have to go to war.” 

Teacher:  “Shut up”
