A Teacher's Aide (TA) wandered into my classroom to fill her water bottle up at one of the sinks.
TA: You're not here every day, are you?(End Scene)
ATHG: No, I'm only here Tuesday-Thursday.
TA: That really is inconvenient. We don't have access to the sinks or paper towels when you're not here. Don't you think you could leave the door unlocked.
ATHG: Well, no, I do have a lot of stuff in here...
TA (looking around): Oh yeah, I guess you do...
ATHG: You could ask for a roll of paper towels for your room...
TA: I really think this was the dumbest idea when they built this room here. They could have asked us first. What do they expect us to do?
ATHG: I can see how it's inconvenient, but I'm glad they built me a classroom. It's better than the alternative. I could have been on a cart.
I almost felt bad for this woman. I mean, to think that she has to walk a couple classrooms down to the water fountain or bathrooms when I'm not here. *Gasp* The poor thing. Honestly, I don't even use the sinks in my room to fill up my water bottle. You wouldn't either if you smelled the water that came from those faucets. I really liked though how she made no effort to hide the fact that my needs as a teacher were far less important than her need for water and dry hands. Two weeks later and I'm still chuckling over it.
