Really? A math teacher? I hope your berating the cashier at the supermarket over your stupid soda discounts was worth it, because you pretty much made math teachers look like lunatics. Perhaps you should lay off the soda, considering your impatience and unwillingness to allow the cashier to rectify the situation. If you can get that mad over a discount, I’ve got to wonder how you deal with your students. Do you employ corporal punishment if they say 1+1=3? If you can’t bring yourself to apologize to the cashier and store manager for your petty, ridiculous outburst, then you resign from your teaching position immediately. You have no business teaching kids anything, except how not to behave in public.
