Maybe We Don’t Always Need to Teach Them to Speak Up 

A former student enters my room, walks over to me, and sheepishly mumbles something…

Me: “Honey, I can’t hear a word you’re saying. Speak up!”

Kid: <steps closer and mumbles again>

Me: “I would love to help you but I cannot hear you! Louder!”

Kid: <more mumbling>

Me: “What?!”

Kid: “DO YOU HAVE A MAXI PAD?”

Oh. Shit.
