Why I wish I'd become a teacher

Grading papers looks like fun:
(I retyped the stuff that may be illegible.)

Reads: q: Explain why phosphorus trichlorice (PCl3) is polar.

a: God made it that way.

No. There is an elephant in the way.

q: The water of the earth's oceans stores lots of heat. An engineer designed an ocea liner that would extract heat from the ocean's water at (some formula) and reject heat to the atmosphere at (another formula). He thought he had a good idea, but his boss fired him. Explain.

a: Because he slept with his boss' wife.
q: Sea salt is commercial obtained from sea water by the process of evaporation and crystalization. The main component of sea salt is sodium chloride. W hat type of attractive force or bond holds the sodium ions together in a crystal of sodium chloride?

a: James Bond

Yep. Shoulda been a teacher!

LOL! That is so hilarious! My dad has a great sense of humor and is always one-upping the kids who try to make fun of him. One day all the kids were talking about there abs and who had a "six pack". One of the students asked my dad, "Hey Mr. Fish, do you have a six pack?" My dad patted his large belly, and replied, "No I've got the whole keg!" My dad has a million stories like that he is a great teacher.

somewhere deep in my files, I have a bunch of things like this that my own students wrote. I should look them up. One of the best parts of being a teacher, for sure.
