Mr. Blue Shirt

"...Although, he's wearing a green shirt today..."

The students were all excited, but not in a good way. They spotted another sub on campus--the sub they'd had the last time the teacher I was covering was out. And it became this big, long discussion.

I have met some of the other subs. I wanted this sub's name in case I had run into him before.

"He wouldn't tell us his name. He told us to call him 'teacher'."

Then they went on to list all of his quirks. Teenagers can be vicious. I tried to rein them in a bit. If they talk like that about him, what are they saying about me? I even mentioned this. However, I was assured that I was "nice" and not made fun of.

Yeah, right.
