A Conversation That Made My Day

Student #1: Look, Mr. Orlin, we all signed this petition!

Me: “We, the undersigned, would like to have Calculus all day, every day.” Hey, I’m glad you guys are enjoying the class.

Student #2: Can you change the schedule?

Me: Well, logistics aside, you guys only got two signatures on this.

Student #1: What are you talking about? Annie signed it too!

Me: Her name is in your handwriting. And she’s glaring at us.

Student #2: Look, it’s a petition. Take it or leave it.

  1. Umm, the text says “two signatures”, but the picture shows three. This reminds me of the definition of absent-minded professor: one who while saying A and writing B, means C; however, D is correct….

    1. Well, they had three signatures – as it says in the dialogue, one was forged.

      But every kid I’ve taught will gladly tell you that my mistakes-per-minute rate is impressively high.
