What They Actually Mean....

I am honestly praying that my teachers stay miles away from this post !

also note: this is only with reference to Literature teachers. S stands for "said" and M for "meant"

S: " This author has produced some revolutionary, extraordinary works........."

M: " Vague words are the best that I can offer now..."

S: " What is your opinion about the text? Tell me what you all think?"

M: I woke up late, I am unprepared.I need you to to give me the cue.

S: "Internet is not a good source of information"

M: Internet is my only source of information. I don't want you to find out.

S: " Don't write what I am saying. It's all there in book X"

M:  As it is you can see I am dictating, why embarrass the shit out of me.

S: " Every teacher must take the register"

M: If  I did not, at least my class would have been empty.

Cheers !

How about the comment by a certain teacher 'you may all disagree with me but silently'
'you must learn to think independently'
but 'don't wate my time asking questions'? :p :P
