life path and such

that moment when a fine ass community organizer walks in and talks to your students about student push out in schools and how it is modeled after the prison system…. and then you blush cos he’s too charming and you just can’t help yo self.
DEATH. OF. ME.
Student: You do consider a plant a living organism….do you? Me: *FACEPALM* Student: Yes.

I really have little to nothing nice to say so I wrote ”hi…you’re kind of aggressive but I guess you’re okay. Thanks for holding Gompers down.”. I really thought I was somewhat being nice and real at the same time. I guess that’s not acceptable. I’m sorry...

I understand not holding the door if the person behind you is 5000 feet away but if they’re literally right behind you though?? Fuck these people. ____ PS. 5 people quit this...
