Back to Shambolic College!
1) When asked by a student (who failed my class last term) if he could leave early on the first day of class in order to meet his friend I replied smilingly, and with a shrug, "Why not? It's your decision." He scarpered, I marked him absent. Easy!
2) The students filled in the end of conversational questions to ask their classmates, by way of getting to know them. To finish 'Where do you usually...?' a dead-pan Vietnamese boy wrote '...hide when you are being hunted'. Without a glimmer of a smirk he wrote down my reply 'In the closet'.
3) Further to the above, a dappy Iranian girl completed 'Are you...?' with '...going out with my grandfather.' What?
