Teachers like parents also have their favourite. However, they have no time for pretence, so everyone knows who their favourite is. It looks like a bed of rose on the surface, but it goes deeper than that. Everyone who used to be one knows that, and this should help them relive memories of those days.
You couldn’t play too much because the teacher knew your name and face
You had to bury all the urge to go wild and have as much fun as your classmates do. Why would you lose yourself and be a kid like the rest when you were not mad? You always felt the eye of the particular teacher on you, daring you to misbehave.
You were the designated errand executive
You were always the teacher’s first choice when it comes to errands. At some point, you began to question the point of going to school if you were going to be dealing with another version of your parents.
Your classmates always left you out of juicy gossip
It was nothing personal. They just didn’t trust you not to be a snitch. And if you actually thought about it, you were low-key a snitch
You were always held responsible for something your classmates did
There was no way you could escape it. How would the teacher handle your classmates making a noise? They would single you out of the bunch and you would have to deal with something like “I’m disappointed with you.” If you also doubled as the class captain, well, that complicated things even more.
Sometimes, you got spared when you didn’t turn your assignment in
Being the teacher’s pet had its perks too, and one of them involved your teacher looking the other way when you didn’t turn your assignment in. The rest of the common people who didn’t weren’t usually so lucky.
Everyone thought you did well in tests because the teacher liked you
People with their crazy thoughts, right? You studied hard, but your classmate would never believe that you being the teacher’s favourite played no role in that.
You also got the worst punishment when you didn’t do well in a test
You just couldn’t win. When you did well, you wouldn’t hear the end of it from your classmate. When you didn’t do well, your teacher wouldn’t let it go. If others got two strokes of the cane, you got four.
