Once, the art teacher was yelling at my bubbleheaded class, telling them they come in however they want and that they're irresponsible (which is true, I would know), then the wannabe class clown runs in and screams "woosh!" and knocks over a table. The teacher screamed at him, but he didn't care. He's used to it by now.

last year we had a sub for french. He was convinced he was right yet his french was horrible. We were correcting our homework and he had an argument with my friend. He was so convinced that Lancons and Lancions were different words,  but of course they arent, Lancons is 3rd person plural in present tense and lancions is 3rd person plural in the imperative tense. she finally showed him a besherelle because he wouldn't lusten to 32 of us. All he said was "OK, number 16"

I had the creepiest teacher ever yesterday.
It started off with her bringing a statue of Mary to her desk, then putting a picture of Mary on the blackboard. She wrote all this religious stuff all over the blackboard and wouldn't let us stand up without asking her permission (none of us did of course). Then my friend announced she was atheist and the teacher went even more crazy. By now, you should realize she was not just a good catholic, but should-be-in-a-loony-bin catholic. Then, in the afternoon, she made us listen to this half hour speech about how the Devil was god's fave angel until he got all mean. But the last really crazy event was when she sprayed us with Holy Water. She had disquised it by brining it in a glassescleaner container. And she sprayed us with it,
She scared me. No offence to Catholic people, I don't really mind if you're catholic, but she was CRAZY. Even the catholic kids in my schol agreed.

haha, she sounds... interesting emma-la. But the angel story isn't crazy, i've heard that too
Title: Re: Totally Bogus!
Post by: Emma-la on May 01, 2010, 10:31:30 PM
Yeah, well the way she told it, it was pretty scary. She spoke of how all talent is from God and how God doesn't play favourites (ahem, what about hiss fave angel??) and then I got to thinking. If we get all of our talents from God, then what about unhappy/untalented people? Wouldn't that be God playing un-favourites?

i like atheism






Once my math teacher (last year) was in a bad mood. Why? Because the snowplow didnt come. he telled at us so much and sent 5 kids out in the hall
Title: Re: Totally Bogus!
Post by: Mara-la on May 01, 2010, 11:10:35 PM
I had this one sub teacher a few years ago. My real teacher had left because he was suspended (I still wonde what he did). So, anyway, this sub came in (and if your Chinese, I mean no offence) and he sat down and farted on the desk! Then he started speaking chinese to my FRENCH IMMERSION class! We didn't understand him, of course, so he sent us out into the hall! By the end of the day, all of us non-Chinese were out in the hall. Then the principal came upstairs, looked at all of us, an said: "are you all in trouble?" and we responded: "our teacher is nuts!". So, she went into th class and heared the sub speaking in Chinese, then she kicked him out! She was the best principal ever! To bad she's retired now.

So, there was this guy who was sitting on a chair when it broke. He fell on the floor, and everybody glared at him because they thought he wanted attention. (See, this guy does it EVERY DAY)

Post by: Chloe-Wa on May 03, 2010, 09:19:22 AM
haha, that would be shaming
Title: Re: Totally Bogus!
Post by: Mara-la on May 03, 2010, 09:22:10 AM
Not as shaming as this! A while ago, I had to play this bogus ice cream lady in a play. I get up on stage and say my line. Then, of course, someone behind the curtain falls over, knocking the curtain over, and revealing an actor in his underclothes! He was just getting ready for his part when the curtain fell!

Yeah, but he deserved it. All day he was going around saying: "im way better than you", so call it carma. I don't really believe in that stuff though.

hehe, I love  the prospect of Karma.  my friends and I went ice skating, and i have terrible balance, so i kept falling. I asked one of my friends to help me up because i was sitting in the middle of the rink and couldn't get up, but she wouldn't help and left me there, and a few minutes later she fell over and i didn't help her up and said she had been hit by karma  :D
