Student: you want me to go get you a Dr. Pepper Miss Hunter
Me: yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees..please lol
Student: and i know, i know! NO diet and bring back yo change!

I usually send two responsible students on this “mission”. But I have a few student who like to try and “trick” me. Telling me that they got me a diet or they couldn’t reach my change.

Now the change thing I can understand. I teach 1st grade and most of them have tiny hands and fingers, BUT I have a few giants in my classroom lol.
