I need to hang it up and look for a new job. I haven’t been fired yet, but it’s just a matter of time. Here’s proof:
Science test question: What is the purpose of pan scales?
Moses’ answer: Measuring pancakes.

Jake: : “Ms. A., Don’t mark Ricky absent, I seen him this morning walking to school.”
Me: “I saw him, Jake.”
Jake: “You did? Then why are you marking him absent?”

Reading comprehension question: How are Earth and Venus the same?
Me: “Venus has people?”
Me, surprised: “Earth doesn’t have people?”
Me: “So … you live on Earth. Aren’t you a person?”
Ty, indignant: “I don’t live on Earth! I live in Las Vegas!”
He’s right, you know. Can’t be Earth. No intelligent life here. 🙁
