"It's early lunch day, we get out 3 minutes early." No you don't, there's a schedule for that in the sub folder.
"Our teacher lets us go to the bathroom any time we want." So that's why the sub note says don't let students use the bathroom or they need to give you a ticket/pass to use the pass?
"It's not a Sharpie." Just because you scraped the writing that says Sharpie off the pen doesn't mean I don't know what a Sharpie looks like or it's no longer a permanent marker. You can't have them on campus. My personal favorite was the girl who asked me "Can I have my Sharpie back?" 15 minutes after I took it from her and when she told me it wasn't a Sharpie. I said to her, "I thought it wasn't a Sharpie" and she just walked away.
"Do we have to do the essay questions?" That one is usually followed up with a question by me of, "Does your teacher usually make you do the essay questions?" They always tell me no. So then I tell them, "Ok, I'll put in the report to your teacher that you said he/she doesn't make you do the essay question and that's why it's not done." Magically, the essay questions usually get done at that point.

Left Coast. The sad part of this is that you know there are school age kids that refer to it that way because they think that is what it is called.

That was "ALWAYS" the second line from my prisioners after they said "Do you know who I am"? Depending on how I felt, or the location of this exchange, sometimes I would look around and ask if anyone could help this poor guy, as he doesn't know who he is.
