I Hate Meth

At the bottom of a reflection paragraph, a student wrote:

“P.S. I hate meth but [Mrs. Crumpett] makes it easier.”

Turns out, he didn’t mean to misspell “math.”


Math Ain’t One

This afternoon during tutoring, I was helping a young man with his math homework. He absolutely hates algebra and curses up a storm in his frustration with each problem. We got to the last question and the answer was 99.

I gave him the over-the-glasses look and slowly said/sang, “You got 99 problems but math ain’t one.”

(What made it even more hysterical was that he thought it was hysterical that I replaced ‘that word’ with math and made me repeat the line several times. ‘That word.’ The one time he actually doesn’t say it lol.)
