True Story Tuesday

Good morning ladies (maybe gentlemen, let me know). I know last week I told you about some of my school experiences and promised to tell you about more this week.
Do you remember last week telling you about the teacher who sold me mountain dew out of his classroom? Well he was my history teacher. A amazing teacher. He had his own style that when he talked you listened. One thing he hated was the intercom system. I remember him throwing something at the intercom system one time. He was cool like that.
What you may not know about me is that when I was in middle school and high school I babysat at least 20 hours a week. This is how I paid for things like school clothes and extras. I took it very seriously and took my money very seriously, so one day we were setting in class and the teacher got called out of class for something. A minute or so later he walked back in. not a big deal. Except he noticed he that someone had opened a window. He was livid that someone would touch the window. So he started screaming and asking who opened the window. No one would admit it; honestly to this day I had no clue who opened it. What I did know is that the lady I babysat for would be picking me up the moment I got out of school. So he told us that we would not be leaving school until the person admitted opening the window. I was growing madder by the minute because I had to leave, I had a job. A serious job that my friends would not understand. This went on for several minutes. I lost it. I stood up and said “look this is not a big deal to most of you, but to me I have a job and do not have time for this. Just say you opened the stupid window”. Or at least I said something close to that. I think it shocked him. He looked at me and said something encouraging and then told me I could leave. I left and I am sure he let everyone leave or maybe he did not because they were all there when I returned the next day.
Are you tired of my school stories? I have a couple of more to talk about next week and then I promise to move on.
