Elementary teachers take way too much pride in their stupid fucking school plays. They truly believe that they are the reincarnation of Shakespeare and creating a highly-respected and award-winning production. Meanwhile, they have kids from their class wearing costumes made of construction paper reciting like five words while trying not to soil their pants. This loathsome teacher showed just how delusional some of these instructors are.
A West Virginia teacher had her students perform a Thanksgiving Day-themed play. The children took their turns reciting their dialogue, until the last child went to say his lines. The awful of a teacher ripped away the microphone from 6-year-old Caleb Riddle before he could say anything. Calm your fucking tits lady, you’re not George Gershwin, let the kid say “gobble gobble gobble.”
Caleb, who is autistic, was absolutely devastated and began to cry.
Caleb’s mom detailed the distressing and infuriating situation:
I was all excited to go to Caleb’s play everyone did a good job. I left in tears because one teacher grabbed the microphone from Caleb and in a mean way. My son is a little different I know this but his heart is so big and he loves everyone. What does it matter if he wanted to say gobble gobble he was the turkey 🦃 after all. I’m sick of kids that are not considered “normal” be treated the way they are. Caleb I love you and you were a hell of a 🦃. Caleb has level one high functioning autism but that doesn’t get in his way of being a happy little 6year old boy. Please watch the video til the end that is where it happens and tell me what you think this was at Nutterfort Elementary School.
Dr. Mark Manchin, who is the superintendent for Harrison County Schools, said there was no malice intent and that the teacher feels horrible about the incident. He added that “a mistake was made” and “feels very bad.” Manchin said the teacher will not be disciplined.
Fuck this lady. If there was a mistake there was plenty of time to give Caleb back the mic so he could recite his line, but she snatched it away with a maddening shit-eating grin. She really comes off as vile as an ingrown hair cyst on Kim Jong-un’s sweaty taint (Good luck getting that visual out of your head).
What if this teacher had something she truly coveted right in front of her and someone came along and snatched it away from her? I’ll let you decide what that may be.
In the end, Caleb got to recite his now iconic “gobble gobble gobble” line to a fuck of a lot more people than that shitty school play.
