Place: Math class, junior high, eighth grade
Collecting homework Monday, one of the students approached me and said, "Mr. W., I didn't do my homework."
Student: "I didn't understand it."
Teacher: "Why didn't you ask your mother for help?"
Student: "Oh, she's not good at math."
Teacher: "How about your dad?"
Student: "I wouldn't ask him because he's busy watching football on the weekend."
Teacher: "Saturday and Sunday?"
Student: "Yep, college football on Saturday and pro ball on Sunday. He even watches basketball. He and his friends live sports."
