“Stop speaking Chinese.”
Kids proceed to speak Chinese,
Cry when parents called.
I made a mistake with a certain class of students. I began teaching them in a happy, funny way, as that is my natural inclination. They have interpreted this as, “We can do whatever we want without consequences.” There were tears. I do not feel bad for them.
Oh, you say you weren’t speaking Chinese? That’s some pretty damned odd-sounding English you’re whispering to your friend there, then. Funny how you can’t explain to me exactly what you said in English either. You seemed so fluent a moment ago!
I need a drink.
