Cheese aside, I would like to spend some time discussing my current chemistry teacher (I say current because another teacher had been teaching us for a decent amount of time, but he has sadly passed on, leaving us with the man you are about to read about).

The sheer intelligence of this man can be summed up in one key incident that happened a few weeks ago. We were in our lab class, working hard like the dilligent students that we are, when suddenly our teacher looked up from the laptop he so often works at and said, quite matter of factly, "Wouldn't it be funny if a girl had a big butt and had to walk around like this???" He then demonstrated the gait of a large-assed woman for the remainder of our classtime together. That was 20 minutes. Twently whole minutes were spent with our teacher wandering around the classroom imitating a woman with a large buttocks.

This was not the only non-sequitor that I have witnessed. Walking up one day to ask my dear teacher a rather important question and overhearing his present conversation, I immediately returned to my seat. I realized that the conversation that he was currently engaged in was far too important for me to interrupt with my trivial questions. What I heard was this: "Hey, you wanna know why chickens stink so bad?" The man owns chickens.

I have also been able to find out about the great benefits of taking your entire family to "Hooters," for dinner,
not celebrating Christmas (or Birthdays, or any holiday at all), and most importantly I have been able to hear his very rigid opinions on the bust sizes of women these days. There are 13-14 year old girls in some of his classes. I think I speak for many people when I say that when one belives that, "women should have big titties," one should keep that comment to oneself, especially when one teaches a class of young women.

I wish I could say that there has been some benefit, something worthwile that I have gotten from this class. I search and I pry through my head, hoping to find the meaningfullness of it all. I have found nothing, and I sure hope that Physics is better.

(oh and to all those pondering the shortness of part I---I mistakenly submitted the story before I was finished, sorry all)

Now there's a guy in the wrong field. Actually, sexist remarks aren't really allowed in any profession except pro wrestling.

Interesting slice of life piece here, and it's a shame you didn't learn anything science related. However, you got an excellent lesson in life and how not to act. Sometimes they're the most important ones.

Thanks for sharing.

Familiar, yes
I had a teacher like this in high school. He eventually was suspended for attacking a student.

In the first paragraph, your sentence in parenthesis is longer than the sentence you are commenting about. Perhaps you should remove them and leave it as a whole sentence, with some modifications to structure.

I was also left wondering what the punch line of the "why do chickens smell so bad" joke was
As parteepants pointed out, sexist remarks aren't appropriate in most professions. However, a lot of it goes unnoticed in places where someone probably should be standing up and going "this is wrong". I appreciated that you took the time to write about it.

The teacher I had was physics and not chemistry. I never learned much about physics.

Keep up the writing,

murkystreetsofamityville (i love this nick)
