Last Friday was my Senior’s last day, they had their graduations this past weekend. Well on Friday two of my students walked out during dismissal which resulted in All Day ISS.
Mr. C: R You know you have all day today.
R: Oh man, I went all weekend not thinking bout it, and now I gotta do my time.
Mr. C: Yep.
R: And man Mr. C, I had a good weekend too.
Mr. C: Well that’s good.
R: I went to my cousin’s graduation. Then after my cousin’s graduation, I got high.
Then we went to a graduation party, we got high.
Everybody in the parties, my aunties and my granny’s just watched us,
and they knew I was getting high.
Mr. C: Alright I got it.
R: We got to the point where we couldn’t even stand.
Mr. C: How was the graduation?
R: How ’bout this Mr. C, she didn’t do a dance when they called her name. When they call my name, I’m about to shake it across the stage. She didn’t do nothin’!
Mr. C: Well she was probably was just trying to get it over with. She wanted to get her
diploma and seal the deal.
R: Hell yeah, before they tried to take it away from her.
Mr. C: Exactly. She worked hard for it.
R: Hell yeah.
J walks into my room before dismissal:
J: You still need that Mr. C?
Mr. C: What?
J: That yellow xanax.
Mr. C: No. Why would I need xanax?
J: So you can calm down, you take that and you feel a lot better.
Mr. C: Why would I need to be calm?
J: So you can chill, it’ll be the best night you ever had.
Mr. C: My nights are fine.
J: You gon’ watch TV and it’ll be funny as hell, even if it stupid.
Mr. C: I will just watch something funny if I want to laugh.
J: You defeating the purpose.
J: Hey K, you think I should give him something that I got?
R: I don’t fuck with no pills.
J: K, should I give it to him?
J: Something that will have him on the ground.
Mr. C: I don’t want to be on the ground.
J: You gon’ be trying to eat your food, but yo head be going to the
table at the same time.
J: Yo whole body will be feeling too good.
Mr. C: No I’m good.
K: Man these buses be takin’ too long. I wanna go home.
Mr. C: Well they can’t let all of you guys out at once, so they call which buses come first.
K: They just need one big ass bus to take all the kids home.
Mr. C: Well that would take forever, instead of having separate buses go in different directions, they just have to do one giant loop, you wouldn’t get home until about 7 o’clock.
K: You need to get up about god damnit 4:30 in the mornin’ and pick our asses up.
Mr. C: I’m talking about when school gets out. They might as well put a teacher on the bus to teach you something because you would be on the bus so long.
K: You could be on the bus.
Mr. C: I don’t know about that.
K: Yeah if you rode the bus, I would say “hey get off at this stop,” and you get off, I straight egg you.
Mr. C: You carry eggs on you at all times?
K: Yeah, I be havin’ eggs all the time.
K: I egg you like I egged this gal’s car the other day.
Mr. C: You can get arrested for that, you need to be careful.
K: Cuff me bra. (puts hands out).
Mr. C: (stare.)
K: Nah I’m just playin’.
Mr. C: I know.
K: I only egged her because she got smart with me.
Mr. C: Well egging a car is bad for the paint. It could be property damage.
K: It’s bad for the car?
Mr. C: Yeah. If the egg dries on the paint, it could chip when you try to clean it off.
K: Ah shit, well she prolly gonna have messed up paint. I did it at night.
2nd to last day of school before dismissal
K: Mr. C, somebody gettin’ robbed tonight.
Mr. C: What?
K: It’s goin’ down tonight.
Mr. C: Why?
Mr. C: Did somebody do something?
K: Nah I gotta find somebody.
A student starts to escalate before dismissal:
S: I don’t give a fuck
Mr. C: Let’s watch the language.
S: Man I can curse if I want.
Mr. C: And you know the consequences of your actions.
S: It’s Friday, I ain’t gotta job and I ain’t got shit to do, so fuck you.
(Throws a chair and walks out of the room.)
