Some people have mixed reactions when I tell them I'm a teacher. Take today for example:
Girl: He's a teacher at a high school.
Other girl: He's a teacher???
Me: Yeah, I teach kids....can you believe that??? They entrust ME with kids! (as I'm putting on nail polish and taking in the fumes. No wonder why girls polish their nails.)
Girl: I can tell you teach grade school. When you hang around them all day you act certain ways.
Me: What??? How?
Girl: I dunno, just in the way you talk.
Me: Huh??? (as I have a facial mask on while cleaning up after the cookies someone made)
