Teachers can be funny people

During the course of my work, I have occasion to run into quite a few teachers. And one of them gave me the biggest laugh I’ve had at my job.

To make conversation, I asked one teacher what she taught. She said that she works in a junior high, teaching the kids who have “special behavioral issues.” I commiserated with her, saying that “that must take a great deal of patience.”

She looked me straight in the eye, without a hint of a smile. “I tell you, if it wasn’t for the valium salt lick in the teacher’s lounge, I’d have quit years ago.”

I laughed so hard, I scared other people around us and nearly hurt myself.
