Well I just got back from one of the worst and most aggravating days I've had in a LONG time.
On Wednesday I went to the dentist for a cleaning. Because I had too much tenacious plaque (sp?) build up, I had to go back today for even more cleaning! It was SOOOOOOOOO painful! When my dentist was finished, she had blood all over her gloves and my gums were red and clinging weirdly to my skull.
Reluctantly I made my way back to class. I left in the middle of Art and missed all of Lunch (my two favorite parts of the day ) so I could make it to this appointment and not miss much of 7th period, which is PE. I missed half of PE for a doctors appointment on Monday as well. When I got into class and yelled, "Jake!" I thought she was about to start about me not having a pass (I didn't on Monday) so I quickly recoiled with, "Don't worry I have a pass," and I showed it to her.
She continued yelling at me, "I don't care if you have a pass! You're not missing any more of my class! Now you have to make up two PE classes!"
"But I had a Dentist..."
"Stop making appointments during my classes! I'm going to treat this as if you didn't show up today!"
There was nothing I could do so I sat down. I was extremely exhausted from the appointment. The rest of the class hadn't even started to exercise yet so It's not like I missed it. Besides I had only missed 30 minutes out the hour and a half class.
She walked over to me and said, "You have to do this sheet" referring to the sheet projected on the board, and then she stopped herself and said, "Actually, I don't care. You didn't come to class today."
Thats when I got angry. I started to raise my voice.
"You know it's not like I schedule these appointments purposefully during your class! I don't even schedule them, my mom does! You're turning this into some personal thing! Step off!"
Then she sort of yelled back, "You know what Jake, just leave my class! You're not getting credit for being here anyway! And you're getting a referral for this!"
"Fine I don't want to be here anyway!"
And I stamped out of class. Under my breath I muttered, "Fuck you Sturgeon, I'm going to go draw." But luckily she didn't hear. I sat down at a bench in the back of the school and I drew. Nothing is better therapy than art...
But now I have a referral, detention, extremely painful gums, and I have to make up 2 PE assignments!
I'm going to talk with my counselor and switch to a different teacher. I couldn't believe how disrespectful she was to me! I can't even fathom doing that to a student!
I should go back to my old avatar... that's how I feel.
