Hilarious: Why I will never teach pre-school kids again!

Hilarious: Why I will never teach pre-school kids again!

At the crèche where I work, there is a little girl named Vicky. She is so cute and sweet.

Yesterday, just before knocking off, I found her busy, trying to put on her shoes. 

I approached her, and offered to help her. It was such a torrid time. The boots seemed to be smaller than her size. 

It took me 5 minutes to help her wear them. 

When we were done, after making a steps away from her, she called me said “Teacher, you made me wear banana”. 

When I looked at her shoes, to my embarrassment, I realised I had misplaced her shoes – the banana style. 

Upon trying to take off the shoes again, it took me 3 minutes. 

After struggling so much I eventually managed to remove them and tried putting them on again, this time the correct way. 

However, it was more difficult than the first time. When I finished, she said: “Teacher, these shoes are not mine!”

I really got angry, but since I work with little kids, I had to be patient and control my anger. I struggled to remove the shoes. 

I then asked Vicky where her own shoes were and this is what she said:

“These shoes belong to my sister; my mum is the one who made me wear them in the morning today”.

This time I boiled in anger. But since I always do my job perfectly and whole heartedly, I helped her to put on the shoes again. 

When we were done, Vicky pulled another shocker, yet again. “What about the socks, teacher?” she asked.

I wondered whether I should laugh or cry. 

Politely and swiftly I asked her, “Where are the socks Vicky?”

She innocently replied: “I shoved them in my shoes, they are in front of my toes”

I resigned that day.
