Being a teacher is pretty rough. They’re seriously underpaid and seriously overworked. Being a substitute teacher is even worse. Reddit user Rethcaw recently shared a note left behind by a substitute teacher that sums this up pretty well…
8:30: Jackson won’t stop yelling “Peanuts.” Janelle has spilt her milk and fruity pebbles, everyone won’t stop laughing. I can see her about to explode. I fear for the safety of these children.
9:15: Dylan has started a dance party in the corner. At first it was just the boys. After Geneva joined it’s taken over half the class.
10:00: The fart noises haven’t stopped for 30 minutes. It started with a real fart. I suspect Hugo.
1:00: The decibel level has reached an unhealthy level. I’ve fashioned ear plugs out of broken crayons. Please let me survive this.
2:00: The end is in sight. I said the words “free time” and it was as if this room was hit by a bomb.
3:00: They’re gone, finally. I spent the second half of my day drafting my letter of resignation. The name Jasmin appears no less than 8 times.
