Most Embarrassing Moment From HS: “I turned in a Journalism assignment and my teacher hated it so much that he threw the stapler at the wall and walked out in front of the class. It was aggressive, I think his exact words were, ‘This is just like the Titanic; it’s alright for a while and then it just sinks.’ It hurt my heart.”
