I’m sorry all. I’m sorry I have to ruin one of the few good things about 2017. But Man’s not hot is slowly driving me crazy.
When I first found it, I loved it. It’s a wholesome meme, not rude, sounds pretty good and can be used in a variety of situations. I enjoyed it like we all did.
And then my students found out about it.
Suddenly, in my computer science classes and ICT classes, I found myself having to tell students to not sing. To not do appalling London accents. When I asked students to take their coats off… Well, you can guess the rest.
Today I was applauded by my class when I told them to stop singing. They applauded me for getting their hilarious reference. Their claps felt hollow and empty. They had ruined the meme for me and they applauded.
Moral of the story: being a young teacher sucks sometimes.
