THE ONE WHERE SPELLCHECK WOULD’VE BEEN NICE

“My mom taught fifth grade for 30 years, and she had multiple students named ‘Samatha’ because their parents had misspelled ‘Samantha’ on the birth certificate.” –Jackie

THE ONE THAT EMBARRASSED AN ENTIRE CLASSROOM

“My husband and I work across the hall from each other in a freshman academy, so we share most of the same students. I was out on maternity leave for the first month of the school year, and I returned just as students were completing sex ed in their health class. One day between classes a young man asked me when I had found out I was pregnant. I told him that was weird and to do the math: the baby was almost 4 months old. Later, he announced, loudly, ‘October. They had sex in October!’ I’m not sure who was more mortified, the kids or me.” – Mandi
