…don’t tell me that being a teacher is the hardest job. I already know. Say something valuable instead like maybe… “thank you”.
Why am I bringing this up? Because yesterday I was reading an article and enjoying a beer – minding my own business, when some dude asked me if I was studying to be a teacher.
I responded that I was already a teacher and was reading a comparative study.
So then he said: “Being a teacher is the hardest job”. (Duh.)
I gave him the constipated look my students give me when they have no idea what I’m talking about.
Just say thank you.
