Default Re: Have you ever been embarrassed while teaching?

Talking about students pointing out mistakes Dave that happens so many times that sometimes it is no longer embarrassing - spelling mistakes especially.
A friend of mine was reading this thread and really wanted contribute this one since he doesn't have an account here on this site.

From Jeff:
I had had a bad meal of some vegetables mixed with potatoes. The next day in class I messed the air - though unintentionally. It just came as I stood up from the teacher's table. All the students heard because they were doing an exercise and there was silence. The smell was really bad. Anyway, I managed to say sorry. But what really killed me was this naughty guy who opened the window next to where he was sitting. Teaching sometimes sucks folks! Things done everyday by everybody become scandals if it is a teacher.
Nice thread Denis.
