I'm guessing by the fact that he came second to last, he's not not athletic. That's enough for most PE teachers. Source: Years of PE teachers disliking me even though I tried my hardest. *sad face*

Those who can't invent, teach, those who can't teach, teach PE. You might not be athletic but I'm sure in the long run you won't be making high school student students run around a gymnasium. Unless of course that's what you want! Nothing wrong with that

Ugh, I've hated sports my whole life. Partly because of piss-poor teachers but mainly due to the way I was treated by the other students. It's genuinely amazing how nasty people can be because you can't kick a ball.

Teachers like this are what made me hate athletics. I would put in 110% effort, but because I sucked I'd barely get a passing grade. They really need to grade based on effort not ability and maybe kids wouldn't be so discouraged, and in turn stop exercising.

74 - Obviously you could tell he was sharing his own opinion, and I'm sure most other people could as well. Saying "in my opinion" isn't generally necesary.

69, they have that in our school now, like if you manage to run 4 laps within 12 minutes and you are exhausted and gave it your all, you can still get the same grade as the person who ran 7 laps, all because of your effort.

#57 It's because these types are usually too stupid to have anything else in life, so they cling to it. I received similar abuse, then I moved up a P.E. set and suddenly we're all friends? I don't agree with that. So now I treat them like shit instead.

Haha, wow. I didn't know there were so many anti-atheletics out there. And playing the clarinet, and my GPA show that athletics aren't my only focus. It may sound like I'm on a "high horse", but really, I'm saying, it's not impossible to be both, get out there and get off your asses.

Depends on your situation, Afro. Some people don't have the environmental stimuli to be motivated to do everything, where you grow up, your self worth, your quality of life and income play a huge role in your athletic and academic success, it doesn't take a gifted person to be successful but at the same time not everyone is "sitting on their asses" instead of getting out there. There's also other things to be good at than academic and athletic traits.

People have problems, you know 119. For example I've been in 4 comas and hospitalized over 20 times, I've had catheters, NG tubes, and up until a couple years ago, I didn't know it wasn't standard procedure to get an IV when going into the ER. That completely cut out any hand-eye coordination and I can't metabolize protein to make muscles so there goes that. Now would you call me lazy or a fighter? You never know but there may be some underlying reason as to WHY people can't do everything as easily as you can. Not everyone was made perfect.

Look, I feel sorry that life took a big shit on you. I realize some people have it rough. A buddy of mine wanted to train but his stage 4 cancer kinda put a damper on the training. I know some people can't physically do it. But the OP never once said," I have *insert physical disability here*". And there is no way, that half of the 1/3 of America that is obese have these extreme medical problems.

That was mainly for 153. And you're right. I agree completely, because I feel that if I was paralyzed, or lost the ability to at least maintain my physical fitness, I would feel life past that wouldn't be worth living. Both my parents were athletes, and I guess I'll try to get my future children interested. After all, what's life worth, if you can't really live it.

Thanks for clearing that up, nobody means to pick on you we just get defensive because you generalized. Generalizing is a dangerous thing my friend, especially here. Tread softly my friend

#2, really? I think in this case, the OP would be better off if he said, "*gasp* *wheeze* *gasp* *wheeze* *gasp* *wheeze* *gasp* *wheeze* *gasp* *wheeze* *vomit* *faint*."

I personally would prefer to be the person who told off the gym teacher rather than the kid who couldn't run the mile without vomiting and then passing out in it.

Don't know why these comments are getting thumbed down. I'm wondering where you guys went to school that you could say no to the teacher when you felt like it without consequences.

Reply

For me it was 20 minutes because some asshole told the teacher I took a short cut-so he made me go back to where i was accused of taking said short cut and keep adding on to the time.

I almost feel as if 9 is saying actually skip a lap. Like the movement of skipping. It is great advice and I would do it flamboyantly. I hated PE teachers like that. I had one that made me run despite a pinched hip nerve and a doctors note to stay off it. I walked the whole damn thing.

Reply

My point of that is it's just gym class, and it's just a mile. If OP didn't skip a lap the first time, there would clearly be a difference in time when they did. That alone would be worth making a fool out of the teacher in my opinion.
