11th grade U.S. history. The teacher had found several video clips on YouTube that showed what life was like at the turn of the Twentieth Century. She left shortcuts on the main screen of her laptop, and everything was plugged in and ready to go.
In preparation, I opened each video in a new tab. And then... I shut the laptop...
...thus engaging the automatic lock.
Did I mention that the computer was logged in under the teacher's name? With a password I did not have.
I realized the stupidity of closing the laptop the instant after I did it.
(Why did I close the laptop? I'm not sure. I think I was trying to engage the blank screen. But who knows? I think I'll blame it on the cold I was coming down with.)
At least I had the brains to do this right before the prep period the period before I needed the videos. So, I had time to piece something together.
Some days I have it all together. And then other days I'm the stupid sub who screws it all up.
