You might be a hobo teacher...

I know I joke about always having grading to do, and I rely on the "funny because it's true" factor. But have we teachers moved into a "sad because it's true" phase?

I'm going to steal, uh, pay homage to the "You might be a redneck" people now. Stop me if you've heard these.

You might be a hobo teacher, if you hear the following:

"I don't care if you have quizzes grade. You're getting a ticket for driving with your knees."

"You can't sit at a booth if there is only one of you. It doesn't matter if you have to 'spread out'."

"I'm sorry, but we can't have you grading during the X-rays."

"Will you turn out that pen light? A movie theater is no place to mark research papers."

"I think it's spelled s-u-p-e-r-s-e-d-e. Now can I finish going to the bathroom?!?"

You think I'm joking, but try to guess which one of these I didn't make up.
