I got in trouble a lot, but occasionally, a teacher would be cool.
The first time it ever happened I was in seventh grade.
All year I had been picked last for every game, competition, and PE sport.
I was unpopular to say the least.
It was a private Christian school,
I was Jewish and weird.
Not a great mix, anyway,
What happened on the last day of school was interesting.
My most conservative and religious teacher was setting up for us to play a game.
She asked the “team captains” to pick people that usually aren’t picked first,
Because it was the last day, and thought she was doing something nice.
I was first picked.
Instead of going to my team’s side,
I flipped the kid off and said ■■■■■ you”.
I knew I was going to get in trouble, but I couldn’t help myself.
My teacher pulled me out of the room.
She told me she understood my frustration and wouldn’t report it.
It was a big deal because I could have been suspended from the next year.
At the same school, a really cool teacher found a note I had written to a friend about how much I hate Christian school.
He read it in front of me after class and couldn’t make it through the note without laughing hysterically.
After he read the note and finished giggling.
He crumbled it up and threw it in the trash, told me to go to lunch.
At that ultra conservative school, the note could have got me expelled.
Those are just two that happened in middle school.
There are many more.
How about you?
