DATES can get real awkward real fast if you happen to run into somebody you know.
For one teacher, that person happened to be one of his students.
Speaking on the Teachers Off Duty podcast, Pre-kindergarten teacher Tell Williams shared what he dubbed as the “most uncomfortable parent-teacher conference of [his] life.”
Williams explained that while chatting with his date, he saw one of his students walk in with her mother.
When Williams realized his student was approaching him to say hi, he sighed and told his date sorry.
At that point, Williams’ date couldn’t see the student or her mother approaching their table as his back was facing them.
He then explained what happened next: “As she comes to say hi, she doesn’t say hi to me, she pivots and goes ‘Dad?!'”
Meanwhile, the mother sprints over to the table, and Williams immediately thought: “Oh my god, they’re married.”
After Williams asked if the two parents were still married, they hastily explained that they divorced two years ago and tried to convince him it wasn’t weird to date his student’s father.
But, Williams couldn’t handle the awkwardness and had to end things with his date.
“I was like ‘This is really uncomfortable…’ Like I’m not going to date a student’s parent, that’s really weird,” he explained.
He added that he paid for his things, then “zoomed” out.
Several people were shocked in the comment section, like one who wrote: “The GASP that came out of all of our mouths.”
Another commented: “Add another reason to why I’m terrified to date as a teacher.”
A third added: “That’s like a movie scene,” while someone else wrote: “Oh my God lol that will be a pass for me.”
Williams commented as well and wrote: “I’m glad you all laugh at my misfortune.”
Meanwhile, one year four teacher asked her students what they would change about her and their responses were savage.
Additionally, another teacher shared what it really means when teachers call students a “delegator” or “spirited” in conferences.
