A little boy was doing his math homework.
He said to himself, “Two plus five, that son of a b**** is seven. Three plus six, that son of a b**** is nine….”

His mother heard what he was saying and gasped, “What are you doing?”
The little boy answered, “I’m doing my math homework, Mom.”

“And this is how your teacher taught you to do it?” the mother asked. “Yes,” he answered.

Infuriated, the mother asked the teacher the next day, “What are you teaching my son in math?”
The teacher replied, “Right now, we are learning addition.” The mother asked, “And are you teaching them to say two plus two, that son of a b**** is four?”

After the teacher stopped laughing, she answered, “What I taught them was, two plus two, THE SUM OF WHICH, is four.”

Lesson learnt

  • Be very careful when you speak to children. They may look like ignoring you but that their sharp ears are picking it all up.
  • Teacher teaches, parent checks :)

It has been a practice here in LessonInLife.com for a casual Sunday, which generally means no heavy topic on Sunday.

Have a great weekend everyone

    kekanak memang cepat tangkap…
    bebaru ni gi kedai gambo yang selalu tu…
    anak dia baru naik 4 tahun… (rasanya lah..)
    sementara tunggu tuan kedai dptkan gambo yg pocket antor… anak dia kuar.
    ‘tengok ini tengok ini… saya jumpa kekotoran!!’
    he said without any chinese accent even though he is purely chinese.
    ‘siapa kah yang melakukannya?’ said da pocket…
    ‘ianya ayah saya’ said the little boy…
    at this point i’ve remembered his way of talking is near to that anime DORA which is usually on the air everyday evening.
    ‘apa patut kita kata pada ayah awak!?’
    i said…
    ‘ayah jangan kotorkan lantai!!’
    ‘ayah jangan kotorkan lantai!!’
    ‘ayah jangan kotorkan lantai!!’
    he said three times… just like in DORA…
    .
    Hahahah… now thats sharp.. hopefully he wont forgot to learn mandarin:D

    heheh…very funny. It reminds me of a story about an Indian teacher teaching maths in BM.
    unfortunately…i forgot the whole story but its the.. ” 2 campur 2 kalu jadi empat”… all the “kalu’s” make the students confuse.
    Banji, keep the “lessons in life” going…
    Bravo bro!
