if this is the worst they have come up with, I don't think you're doing too bad. I'm sure I'll get downthumbed for this but really grinds my gears. I hope this attitude of yours doesn't show when you're teaching, OP. assholes? really? perhaps you treat them like assholes, so they act like assholes to you. there are too many teachers that can't find a job. maybe rethink your career choice, OP. someone out there won't mind teaching those "assholes." we have to teach these kids to be more respectful.
They probably mess with you because you can't take a joke. I personally love to mess with people who can't take a joke, and I'm sure others do as well
I don't even think they were even trying to be mean or mess with him. It's a joke and it's funny. Lighten up and I bet your job teaching will be much more fun. Joke around with them, even come up with a better nickname, "uhh that's Mr. Crispy thank you very much."
then don't teach as a career. they seem to be messing around all in good fun. you need a sense of humor to be a professor
Shoulda warn sunscreen and YDI for not being passionate about teaching
I'm a teacher and a vocal advocate for my profession, but sometimes students are assholes (I've got two published FMLs to prove it) and sometimes my job really sucks. Sometimes I hate it, complain about it, and threaten to quit. Doesn't mean I'm not a good or passionate teacher-- it means I'm a human being who gets frustrated with her job like everyone else. Though OP should toughen up a bit, I can see how this situation would be annoying.
