"School Day-Ring! Ring! Goes The Bell"

Day 6, Monday: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?

So if you're new around here then you have probably never read my Life of Ms. Aleshea Posts. I suggest you check them out here since today's post touches on that without actually telling y'all what I do for a living. I guess I shall try and explain what I do without actually tellin' y'all.
I mostly listen to stories like this:
J: Ms. Aleshea, you got a boyfriend?
Me: No ma'am
J: Well, why you ain't got no boyfriend?
K: Ms. Aleshea can I have snack. I ain't get snack.
Me: Yes, you did. It's all over your face.
K: *wipes off the snack and then runs off* 
D: You ain't gonna tell my Momma. Please don't tell my Momma.
Me: Boy, you peed on the side of the school. Don't you think I have to tell yo Momma. 
D to T: That why you got one tooth that's longer than the other.
T to D: Shut up cause yo Momma got one gold tooth.
D to T: At least I know who my Daddy is.
Me: *shakes head* Really y'all  

But this one is ALWAYS my favorite y'all:

Some random kid calls me Ms. or Teacher a million times and I politely look at them and say: "That ain't my name. Come back when you remember it!"

If you really want to read the funny ones I suggest you go here. I promise y'all I can't make this nonsense up. I usually write down the crazy stuff I hear so I can document it on the blog. Obviously I always use initials so that I can't get in trouble for posting names.
“The great teachers fill you up with hope and shower you with a thousand reasons to embrace all aspects of life. I wanted to follow Mr. Monte around for the rest of my life, learning everything he wished to share of impart, but I didn't know how to ask.”
