Turns out that the teacher doesn’t really mean it: “If you want to talk, you can go outside”

“It’s like I can’t win”

Local Year 12 boy, Kyle Ross today learnt that when a teacher says, “if you want to talk, you can go outside,” they in fact, do not mean it.

“It’s hard. You disobey them – you’re in trouble. You obey them – you’re in trouble. It’s a loose, loose.”

Mr Ross explains that it all started when the teacher began on her ritual comment, ‘it’s not my time you are wasting. It is yours’.

“So I thought, well, I need to work out some other sh** and I don’t care about why waves and the moon interact. So I kept chatting.” He revealed to The Footnotes. 

“Next she said that I was welcome to go outside and continue my conversation if her lesson was interrupting me – so I thought, great!”

Though, that’s when things changed for the worse.

“Upon leaving the classroom – she went bonkers.

“Literally bonkers.

“She was crying saying that she had spend her own money making the poster in the classroom – that the school didn’t give her budget for that A2 printing. All that kind of sh**. She told me to get out of her sight,

“I stood there waiting for more – but then she said, why are you still here? and I explained that when she said I could leave, and I left – it was wrong. So how did I know that she wasn’t doing the same thing now.”

“She gave me a detention” Mr Ross reveals, but he is unsure whether to attend or not.
