This just keeps getting better
Here's an update: First off, the kid that changes the tank now thinks it's ok to dump the gravel into the sink, rinse it, and put it back in. People clean off poopy scoopers in there! Anyone heard of BACTERIA! He's also really rough with the fish.
A couple days ago the kid was out so I offered to do the betta tank. As I was acclimating him to the water (my teacher and some of the students now accept this as a good thing) my teacher comes up to me and asks how he is doing. I reply that he's not doing so great and still really needs a heater. She says that she is going to leave herself a message on her home phone to bring in "the tank with the heater" which I don't think actually exists. Does she really think that I don't realize that she is just blowing me off?!
The tank is still not there two days later-big surprise there.
Today that stupid kid cleaned the tank again. Then he fed him; tons of bloodworms (he is still not eating the pellets which I think are also too big for his mouth). The teacher is right there and doesn't say anything. So later I walk by the tank to see the fish floating on his side, like I didn't know that was coming. So I point it out to the teacher and explain what she should do and why this happened and she says that she thinks she will take him home this weekend (gee, I haven't heard that before).
A few minutes later, I saw her just staring into space like people do when they are torn about something. I was hoping that she would ask me if I would take him, she knows that I would. But, her teeny, tiny brain just couldn't come to the right conclusion and she said nothing.
I can't stand this! It is just horrible watching an animal slowly die such a horrible death
! I'm sure he will still be there on Monday if he is still alive, and I am going to ask her to reconsider and give him to me. At this point I really don't care what she thinks of me, she can't fail me just because she doesn't like me!
An unrelated topic, but worth sharing. As you can probably guess, she is a horrible teacher as well. She doesn't teach us ANYTHING and makes us either do research papers, or a "teaching project" where we teach the class about what we researched about. So, when one kid (who obviously has a mental impairment) was doing his presentation and confusing the class with contradicting facts, I hear her saying under her breath to a student who was confused "Well, that's because there's a lot missing from this presentation." How immature is that! If she wants us to LEARN something she should not count on us to be teachers, and get off her fat butt and teach it herself! That's what they pay her for right! UNBELIEVABLE!
