Did you know there were codes for teachers? Uh-huh. There definitely is.
You've probably had the following phrases said to you before by your teacher. They mean something...something that isn't exactly what they mean (does that make sense?).
1. "Oh! I remember you!"
-No, they don’t.
2. "That's very unique..."
-It's ugly. Weird.
3. "It's your decision..."
-They don't know.
4. " *gasp* I...love it!"
-Be careful. They might not. There's a reason for the gasp.
5. "Don't worry about it."
6. "It's okay, I don't want anything."
-They're dying for something.
Sympathy is all they ask for...or is it?
See if you can connect these codes to other things/people. It's not only teachers that use them...
