ATHERTON, Calif. – A California school teacher was placed on paid administrative leave after he rattled a table to get the attention of his math students, startling an eighth-grade girl who used her cell phone to call police.
Atherton police Sgt. Tim Lynch tells the Palo Alto Daily News that officers went to Selby Lane School Tuesday afternoon because of reports a teacher was causing a disturbance.
Officers found a calm teacher with class in session.
The sergeant says the teacher’s table-rattling startled a student and she used her cell phone to call 911. He says other students in the class weren’t bothered by the teacher’s actions.
Allow me to translate for you: “I don’t like the teacher and I was screwing off or doing something that, in 1965, would have gotten me expelled or excommunicated or executed or something and I got all pissy because the teacher violated my “personal space” and upset my chakras or some shit and demonstrated what an ass I was by rattling my desk to break me from my day dream in which I was gagging on Justin Bieber’s DNA sampler while the Jonas Brothers hermetically sealed me.”
Of course, that’s just a guess, but I am guessing that a) no kid has ever been so frightened as to call 911 on his teacher, b) the “rattling” was nothing to cause alarm, c) she had an axe to grind, and d) she is a spoiled little shit that probably didn’t get nearly enough discipline or attention from daddy.
