Especially teachers' opinions...
Younger Son's class is doing reports on various countries. Yesterday, one student presented his report on Greece, and noted the beer consumption of the country.
"Oh," remarked the teacher, "I'll need to drink more beer to keep up with them!"
The class laughed.
As class was dismissed for the day, the teacher said, "I'm going home to have a beer. And if I'm not here in the morning, you'll know why."
As Younger Son told us about it, seeing the stunned looks on his parents' faces, he defended his teacher pointing out emphatically that his teacher was only joking. Only joking. Everyone knew it was a joke.
The husband and I think it was a joke in poor taste.
And we are debating whether or not to report the incident.
What say you?
