Silly Sunday

Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

You Might Be a Teacher if...

You might be a teacher if you want to slap the next person who says, "Must be nice to work from 8 to 3:30 and have summers off."

You might be a teacher if it is difficult to name your own child because there's no name you can come up with that doesn't bring high blood pressure as it is uttered.

You might be a teacher if you can tell it's a full moon or if it's going to rain, snow, hail... anything!!! without ever looking outside.

You might be a teacher if you believe, "shallow gene pool" should have its own box on a report card.

You might be a teacher if you believe that unspeakable evils will befall you if anyone says, "Boy, the kids sure are mellow today."

You might be a teacher if when out in public, you feel the urge to snap your fingers at children you do not know and correct their behavior.

You might be a teacher if you have no social life between August and June.

You might be a teacher if you think people should have a government permit before being allowed to reproduce.

You might be a teacher if you wonder how some parents MANAGED to reproduce.

  5. I was a teacher and yes I would get so angry when someone would say "Must be nice to work from 8 to 3:30 and have summers off."Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. That's how I would feel when they would say it and say it many times. But I would say that there were many great times teaching the children especially now that as adults they are saying some fabulous things about me as well as some of their parents express their feelings on how I was as their teacher. I can smile and smile proudly. Yes it was a challenging experience but a loving one.
    Have a great Sunday Sandee.See ya.

  6. My wife is a math teacher. Her students like her even after years of leaving the school. She is sincere and realistic. She may be one of those exceptional teachers.
    Have a great Sunday!

  7. I can hear my sister-law, the teacher, saying many of those things. I also remember the over-use of hand sanitizer and Lysol when dealing with the younger student :-)

    2. I'm glad Woodsterman (Odie) isn't a teacher. Period. ;)

    3. Odie is like Little Johnny isn't he? Yes he is. :)

      Delete
    4. Odie may behave around kids, I don't know, but he's certainly a bad influence around us grown ups ;)

      I hope he knows I'm just teasing him.

      Delete
    5. Odie is lots of fun and I'm sure he knows you're teasing him. He likes that. :)

  11. I agree with the government permit part. Of course, that will never happen, but it's amazing to me how many people have children who absolutely shouldn't! (And this crosses all economic and demographic types!)

    1. I agree Stephanie. There are so many good parents, but there are so many that shouldn't have kids at all. :)

  12. All funny but I really like the 2nd last one. It should be enforced on a worldwide scale

    1. Funny but these are true too. Teachers have a tough job. :)

  13. Teachers are not paid enough these days....everyone tells them how to teach and no parent wants to make sure their kids school work is done and done correctly. And heaven forbid if a parent hears constructive criticism from their child's teacher.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They sure don't get paid enough for the work they do. :)

      Delete
  14. True, those! We have it backwards--athletes should be paid a teacher's salary, and teachers, theirs!

    Big hugs, honey...

  17. While i did teach my own, and some in a home school co-operative setting, there's no way i could teach in public schools. They'd haul me off to a rubber room!

    1. I'm be in the same rubber room. I just am not cut out for teaching kids. :)
