tell us another story about the olden days grandpa Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33132117
Hehe...ok punk, this is 'grandma' here to relate a true story of one teacher in my public high school.
Anyone who's an old Broughton High School (Raleigh, NC) alumni will either know firsthand or via historic legend about our old German language teacher, Herr Watt.
The man was always dressed in an impeccable suit and tie. If he had a student fall asleep at their desk, Herr Watt would walk over, grab the desk and flip the offending student onto the floor.
On test days or exam week, if you came to class dressed in your Sunday best, then you would receive extra credit put towards your test score.
And woe be to the pair of students who decided to throw hands-n-feet in the hallway or outside if Herr Watt was in sight. Just the sight of him stalking over towards fight to intervene made stupid kids stop and run.
Oh, what fond memories growing up in public school <sigh>.
All of that was thrown out the door and shit has gone sideways so quickly.
