NAME?

I'm sorry, how long has school been back in session? August? And you still don't know my child's name? 
We went to Parent-Teacher  conference tonight and one teacher actually had the gall to say: NAME? And then ask: What period?
What's that all about Mr. S.S.O.B.? I saw your name written on the whiteboard right behind you 5 hours ago and I remember your name. It's S.S.O.B. I knew it before I even introduced myself to you.

Okay, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, you have a classroom full of students that you have to become acquainted with, maybe several classrooms. Some of their names are probably even hard to pronounce. But in my defense, it has been a few weeks. And, YOU'RE. THE. TEACHER.
The only teacher, I might add, who had no clue as to who my daughter is. The other seven teachers learned her name.
Three months from now when we come up for our visit and you say: NAME? I just might grab you by your scrawny little neck and start squeezing.
That is all.

Sadly my teachers all knew my name which wasn't really a good thing in retrospect.

Wow. Even my aged professor knows my name by now!

My teachers still know my name as they are still seeking therapy.

Lord, that's pathetic. But you know some people just can't help being total PRICKS.

(The teacher, not you. :))

I can't stop looking at the picture on your header. That's amazing!
