Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I hereby present you with the inauguration of a currently planned weekly installment I'm calling, "The Dumbest Thing a Student Has Said to Me this Week."
I currently am employed as a substitute teacher at two schools, and each week I find that I have at least one encounter with a student who says something stupid. So I figure it's probably best to make fun of them. Of course, no names will be given.
Thing is, the simple fact of the matter is that students say dumb stuff all the time. There are, in fact, dumb questions, and we all know it. There are also dumb comments. It's time to let the world hear them. Note that my idea for a weekly installment is much less edifying and much more condescending than Jenny's "Wesley Wednesdays."
So without further delay, the dumbest thing a student has said to me this week:
After pestering me for days about why I don't like such sweet metal bands as Pantera and Korn and my consistent testimony that I in fact don't like metal in general, one student asked me if I like Led Zeppelin...
Me: "Yeah, I like Led Zeppelin, mostly their early blues rock stuff."
Student: "Oh, well there's a metal band you like! Led Zeppelin is totally metal."
And that, dear blog reader, is the dumbest thing a student has said to me this week.
