Things Teenagers Say: Volume 52

It's time again for another volume of Things Teenagers Say. This is my effort to record the crazy things that I overhear students say in class each day.


Check out previous issues of Things Teenagers Say:


--

Basketball season is my favorite because I get my abs back.

I thought it was someone who loved me, but it was just my phone company saying "Hi."

Mr. Carter is a line master. His lines are always perfectly straight!

Student 1: I like your twitter profile pic, Mrs. Carter!

Me: Does anyone have an answer?
Student: I have an eyebrow ache.

Student 1: You better act right today or we will have homework.

After explaining that we need to get y by itself...
Student: Why does y always have to be single?

--

Student: Why are your feet more tan than the rest of your body?
Me: It's called pantyhose. Let's get back to Algebra.
Rest of Class: I noticed that, too!

--

(While discussing the job of cleaning windows of skyscrapers)
A bird could hit you in the side, and you'd need a kidney replacement.

Student: So, how'd you end up in Drumright?
Me: They gave me a job.
Student: If I was a school, I would give you a job.

Mrs. Carter, you actually look cute today!

What did you get for Christmas? Obviously not a hairbrush.

Which mathematician figured out that if you divide by zero that the world explodes? Was it Jeff the Mathematician?

Student 1: Are your yellow posters made out of 2 different colors of paper?
Me: Yes. I didn't realize it until I laminated them.
Student 2: Don't point out Mrs. Carter's mistakes.
Student 3: I think we should point out her mistakes because she doesn't make them often.


--

You are a good listener. You would make a great psychiatrist.

Student 1: What is a parallelogram?
Student 2: It's like a pentagon but with one more side.

--

Mrs. Carter, is that cheese you are eating? That's illegal.

Mrs. Carter, I started following you on twitter. You posted a picture of the back of my head and it wasn't brushed.

--

Science describes math as a tool, but math is an art.

  1. Every time I read one of these posts I think that I should start keeping a list of the crazy things I hear in my classes. Every time... One of these times I'm going to do it.

    I love seeing these!

  3. These are hysterical. I would have replied to the automated email, but it was a "no-reply" email address... haha. Just know that I receive these volumes in my inbox, and I die laughing every time. It's really awesome of you to point out that life happens in a classroom, not just learning :)
