Today, I was sent to the principal's office because I refused to take my earbuds out. Those "earbuds" are my hearing aids. FML

how can they not tell the difference?

What did the principle say? Talk to your teacher about her behaviour, and if she does anything like this again, report her.

#34 You're a teacher arent you?

Hopefully not an English teacher.

Well, since we are throwing out generalizations. Let's see how this one is received. Typical Americans, how stupid can you be?

Typical earth dwellers, how stupid can you be?

His first comment was edited. That is what the hate is all about.

Get those gosh darn radios out ya ears!

#75 I'm not american soooo. Plus theres a difference between racism and you know not being a racist twat.

how can they not tell the difference?

Probably because of the surgence of Bluetooth headphones, and the fact that the teachers probably "shoot first, ask questions later".

Idk. I have a pair of black earbuds that hook around the ear so they don't fall off when I'm running. They have been mistaken for hearing aids before, too. Maybe that's what the teacher mistook them for.

It was just a misunderstanding

Why do you automatically assume that the principal is a girl?

You have to assume one or the other.

Not necessarily, "they" and "their" are commonly accepted gender neutral pronouns by all but the most anal retentive English-speaking people nowadays.

He didn't. He assumed the teacher was a girl. If you are going to complain get your facts right.

Actually, it is very annoying in professional writing to not establish a gender. Even if you're wrong, it is better to say "she said," instead of "they said." At least according to my freshman year English teacher, who would knock down a letter grade if a gender wasn't established. Weird stuff

Sorry you had an ignorant asshole for a teacher. Not everyone is male or female.

How do you know it was a she 🤔

No. We're talking about the teacher they keep referring to as a she or her. I don't care that much but wanted to complain anyway

Well, you deafinitely did not hear that one coming.

Someone is going to miss the joke and correct your spelling, guaranteed.

I was about to do it until I read your comment.

#4 Definitely. Just kidding

Looks like my evil plan of making my ear buds look like hearing aids won't work.

actually he would because he didn't take them out

Were your hearing aids made by Doctor Dre?

You get props for trying

#68 your pic totally gits your comment

Couldn't you get proof from a school nurse that they're hearing aids? And anyways, don't hearing aids look different than ear buds? Some people are ridiculous.

Let them wear the hearing aids, max the reception and enjoy their pain.

Put them in their mouth

what would that solve?

world hunger perhaps?

or voice modulation

Wow that sucks. Idiot teachers.

Next time they are talking turn them earbuds off and keep on doing you . How ignorant can people be ?. My question is why didn't you just tell them they were hearing aids? If you did and they still sent you , they need to have have a write up.

Right!? If she was my daughter (I'm hard of hearing so I understand) I would be furious and bitching the school out. In America teachers get letters letting them know that this kid is hard of hearing or deaf this teacher must not like her.

82 it could've been a substitute teacher that didn't know the students well.

I really hope it was a substitute teacher! :/
