Best Whine of the Day

(During 1st Period's exam this morning, from a girl whose grade hovers between the dimensions of perdition and "passing by the skin of my teeth only by God's grace"):

"This exam isn't fair. It's on all the stuff we read this year."

You got it sweetie. Funny concept, that.

my knee jerk response is along the lines of, "gosh, I thought about testing you on the books we hadn't read, but that REALLY didn't seem fair."

That may be why I'm not a teacher. I don't know that my mouth would have stayed shut.

Well, trust me, a smart mouth can come in handy for a teacher - in fact, I find it a nice weapon to have in the arsenal as long as it isn't overused. But the problem with this girl is she's such a ditz (aided, I'm afraid, by certain substances), that my smartie comebacks go over her head.

On this occasion, however, I didn't have to say anything, because the rest of the class cruelly mocked her. Sweet.
