Thanks Necessary

As we’re about to start a tutoring session…

Parent: “We have big news for you– [Kid] improved so much on his report card!”

Kid: “Yeah, I did! My math grades are sooooo much better!”

Me: “That’s amazing!”

Parent (to kid): “And isn’t there someone (nods head towards me) you want to thank for helping you achieve that?”

Kid (Pauses. Looks confused. Then…): “Oh, oh! Duh!”

Me: “Aw, no thanks necess—”

Kid: “God!”


I Don’t Know What This Means

Tutoring an 8th grader….

Me: “So I have a little treat for you. My bridal shower was this weekend and I have all these leftover cookies– would you like one?”

Kid: “Oh my god, you’re getting married?!”

Me: “Yes! In June.”

Kid: “Aw yay! You’re getting married! I really couldn’t figure out WHAT your deal was.”
