Great Moments In My College Education

Greek Mythology Professor (GMP): History can be a deeply satisfying area of study, provided you have the right teacher.

Class: *Nods in agreement.*

GMP: The problem I see a lot with new college students is that they're not inspired by history because they had bad history teachers in high school.

Class: *Nods in agreement.*

Me: *Slumps back in chair.*

GMP: You know what's the worst? The worst is having a history teacher who is also the school's phys ed teacher.

Class: *laughs*

Me: *Slumps further back in chair.*

GMP: Raise your hand if you had a history teacher who was also the phys ed teacher.

Class: *about 2/3 raises hand, myself included*

GMP: You, Ryan, was your history teacher any good?

Me: He was my dad.

*crickets chirping*

Hehe... Was he a phys. ed. teacher as well? Did the professor display any sort of remorse for his comments?
