Overheard in a 12th Grade English Classroom… Part 2

Student: (pleadingly) “Mr. K, I’m telling you, I don’t do anything but As! I just don’t do it!”

Mr. K: (matter-of-factly) “I hear you. When I was a student I didn’t do anything but As, either…”

Student: (dramatic pause and then an SMH) “You gettin’ me guh.”

-Star student, attempting to gain some sympathy from teacher, after receiving 4th advisory grade update and learning that he has a mild case of senioritis.
