Ahora, ¿me permite ir al baño?
Stop! Ouch. Plus, I think it’s demeaning to the kid to have to ask. Good heavens, they’re almost adults.
Haha…..i dont t hink it’s demeaning at all…..they are insulting US by leaving our instruction….bc 9 times out of 10 they are going to the br to wander and rendezvous with friends…..they can go for 50-70 mins without having “to go”…..@ age 12, 13,…….18……they SHOULD have that much self control ….i would hope….. 🙂 but……thats been my own experience …so perhaps i’m a bit jaded.
As I stated in a comment after Robert’s post I will no long have the kids say that…
I will have them say “voy al baño instead…”
I do think most of us have them say that to get “me permite” in their heads but, como sea!
🙂 Did you smile?
You have summed up teacher-angst perfectly! I definitely feel a lot of these same things, even though I’m in a private school with smaller classes. I don’t think anyone understands this stuff unless they have actually been in a classroom for a few years. At least not anyone I’ve talked to…they just think I have the summer off.
