Last week the Flipside was distributed on Wednesday due to a (probably made up) weekend trip for GEECA, causing confusion throughout the whole school. Students were convinced it was Thursday! Junior (insert name here) was especially pissed off, complaining, “I went from second period APUSH to fifth period gym. By the time I realized I had to be in third period, I was in my swimsuit and swim cap already. I missed 20 minutes of my AP English!”
Sophomore (insert name) had to visit his counselor after the traumatic experience of the day. It took him time, but he was finally able to talk about it, saying, “When I got the day mixed up for the first time this year, I had a relapse back to being a freshman. Especially when walking into my pre-calc class, which is 75% freshman, I just couldn’t handle it. It was worse than the hazing.”
Students weren’t the only confused ones. An unnamed Senior English teacher went to supervision instead of third period. Being a Senior class, they probably wouldn’t have learned anything that day anyway, so it wasn’t a big deal.
This was also a problem in and out of school. Senior (insert name) went home, expecting to watch Grey’s Anatomy and was perplexed when it didn’t come on. She said, “I have periods 3-6 free, so the cycle day didn’t tip me off. When Grey’s didn’t come on, I didn’t know what else to do, so I did my homework for the one class I take. It was the first time all year.
When Sam was asked if he knew the confusion he would be causing by distributing on a Wednesday, he just shrugged his shoulders and said, “I didn’t think people were that stupid.”
