Errors New Teachers Make

Yesterday I called out a young man who's been so goofy lately I've phoned his mother several times. She told me "He's wearing me out. All his teachers are calling me every day!"

So when I called out Coop in class I said "Coop, don't make me wear out your mother again!" as I took my phone out of my pocket and held it up.

The class FELL APART. I had to fight hard not to laugh myself. It sounded WRONG. I tried to fix things and say "I meant on the phone," but that made things worse: "Mr. G a midnight caller!" "Mr. G wearing mothers out in the 'hood!" "He wears my grandmother out!" etc.
