Today, as I was yelled at by a middle school teacher in front of 30 6th graders for breaking the rule of "no cell phones in school." Luckily, I escaped being sent to the office after explaining I'm a 21 year old college student doing student teaching observations, not a middle schooler. FML

I'm glad you're getting your lessons in double standards and hypocrisy! I'll bet you smugly chew gum in class (and didn't bring enough for everyone!)

I know how you feel. I worked as a TA at my former HS for 4 months last fall and got escorted to the front desk for suspiciously walking around. I'm 23, had a scheduled appointment and they didn't believe that i wasn't a student.

Unless a bad event follows, it's not really, eh, "right" to put in "Luckily..." in an FML here... So how does this count? If the point is that she thinks you're in middle school... Then... She thinks you look young? ...Too young...

I think its called sarcasm, but I'm not too sure.

Uhm, I think the FML is for getting lectured, AND being mistaken for a middle-schooler at the same time..?

Still, I think a "So what?" is deserving of this FML.

Sweet, sweet statutory. Wait, she's legal? Giggity

haha, that type of stuff happens to me all of the time. I'm 23 and look 16. Get over it. Your life is not fucked for looking young.

I'm 14 and people think I'm 18 all the time. So many people ask me what college I'm going to, etc...

It's still really annoying. I'm 20 and people are constantly mistaking me for a 16 year old. It gets frustrating when people always ID you when you try to see an R-rated movie, or when cops stop you because they think you're violating curfew, or when you constantly get asked out by 16 year old guys, or when people keep asking you if you've lost your high school tour group on your college campus. I'm sure in about 10 years I'm going to be glad that I look younger than I am, but for now, it's an inconvenience.

You're gonna be wishing you still looked young later in life.

Yupp, she really shouldn't complain! Shes lucky

There's looking young, then looking like a 12/13/14/15 year old... o-o

LMFAO, that'd be so funny, I probably would have laughed at her for being so oblivious to the fact that you clearly weren't a student. This made me laugh, thanks for posting :)

Yeah... if you were doing observation, why were you messing with your phone anyways? I hope you were just checking the time on your phone, not texting or checking to see if you had any missed calls.

Ummm, teacher *sniffle*, umm, she took my toy *hiccup* and um, she won't give it back or umm, share it with me. *sob*

You should have just said "Fuck you! Mind your own Business!!!"

How is this an FML? Unless you're very easily offended when people mistake your age, this seems like it would it would fit better on MILA. Better yet, how'd this pass?

I think the FML is actually that the OP is going to college to be a teacher and she finally realized she's dumb as rocks because she can't write a complete sentence.

I'm glad someone else noticed this :)

Well, a 6th grader wrote it, that explains a lot...

Puberty has to be right around the corner for you. Don't worry.

honestly who the hell likes to look older?

The rules still apply to you moron. Your certainly won't be a good teacher if you try to enforce rules that you yourself won't follow.

no kidding. the whole point of taking education and doing the student teaching is kind of for nothing if you're not even going to fucking pay attention.

I know how you feel. I worked as a TA at my former HS for 4 months last fall and got escorted to the front desk for suspiciously walking around. I'm 23, had a scheduled appointment and they didn't believe that i wasn't a student.

I'm going into teaching and had observation hours to do as well. Maybe you should keep it professional and leave your cell phone out of site.

Maybe you should learn about homophones before trying to teach other people's children.

... that is not the comment I replied to. Yes it is... they keep moving.
