Every time I speak, I would hear them laugh.
Well, sometimes, I just wanted to be me and say something
I remember back in New Orleans, our students were all Black-Americans and every time they would hear us, their Filipino teachers, talk to each other
As usual, I just had to stop it and let them taste a dose of their own medicine.
Loudly, I confronted my two lovely girls and said aloud (this time in an American accent and "I-am-kidding-no-more" and "You-must-know-how-MEAN-I-really-am" acting skills).
"Laugh some more, C'mon, LAUGH all you want, because in the end, I'll be the one to laugh the loudest.
IF you DON'T finish your work
you just wasted your time! YOU will get an F. ,
It's not even a laughing matter if I sound different to what you're used to hearing; the LAUGHING MATTER is that BOTH OF YOU are here because you FAILED the course!
Now, DO your work!"
I loved how they blushed, bowed their heads and closed their mouths!
I hear them laugh no more.
Total meanness for a cause! Lol!
