    Far Too Stupid to be a Teacher

    A grade school teacher in southern England was fired after she reportedly told her Jewish students she would “ship them off to the gas chambers” if they did not finish their homework.

    I doubt your teachers threaten the students with sending them to Sand Creek or Wounded Knee.

    That is stupid........I did have a teacher tell me one time to "shut up and do your work if not I am taking you to the office for an ass whooping". I didn't and she did. Case closed.

    I was a slow learner - I was still getting that sort of treatment when they finally got tired of me, gave me a diploma, and sent me home. The teachers probably had a celebration that evening.

    Heh heh heh… sounds like me. I was 17 and told the principal I was leaving school to go in the Army. He said he'd graduate me instead - a win for both of us.

    I hated High School and thought it was a waste of my time. But, I loved college.

    Move over flunkies----I can play that game too

    I graduated 62 in a class of 62---and there wasn't anyone even close

    I was the only one in my class not to go directly to college---I went to the Army 2 months after graduating.

    Eight years latter, when I got my undergraduate mechanical engineering degree---I was on the opposite end of my class standing.

    Unfortunately, Dr. Ralf Hausmann, who believed in me and managed to get me a college acceptance, passed away prior to my graduation.

    I started college on final academic probation--any grade below a "C" would have resulted in my departure

    That was kind of scary--I had been out of school for four years and never really understood how to study in the first place

    I never thought I'd see you play the race card, Fred......

    As for my academic record, I was doing great in school...I was in my third year of the fourth grade, just starting to get the hang of it when my draft notice came in the mail......Ben

    I guess I just say my education was quite an adventure. Early Education was traditional and I got my ass whooped probably about twice a week by the principal because I wanted to be the class clown . Then I went to high school and I absolutely hated it I hated every minute of it so after that I decided what the hell I'll be a cop and I did that for five years got shot and that was over so I went to law school and did that for 31 years well wait a minute I'm still kind of doing that so whatever it means it's just life we're all just here living that's all it is surviving I'm trying to get along trying to make the next day.

    I didn't offer to go military but I told them if they left me alone I would stop causing problems. It worked.
