Student (very dramatically): I can’t go to class. I hate that class. I’m going to stay here with you.
Me: Sorry kiddo, you have to go. The bell rang.
Student (practically vice-gripping my chair): I can’t go, I won’t make it.
Me: There’s only 2 weeks left of school, kiddo, you can do anything for 2 weeks.
Student: I can only do 1 week, Miss.
Me: Well, there are 2 weeks left…
(Student goes to class)
Other teacher (of the hated class who’d heard the whole conversation): You know, there are actually 3 weeks left.
Me (nodding): Yup, but since he can’t even make it 1 week, I figure telling him there are 2 left is no big deal.
Other teacher: Yeah, that last week only has 4 days so it doesn’t count.
Me (grinning): Exactly!
