I've been subbing in South Salt Lake a lot this school year, which so far has been a refreshing experience compared to subbing in downtown Salt Lake. Unlike downtown Salt Lake City, students in South Jordan seem capable of watching movies and completing word-searches without carving gang symbols into their desks. Also, students in South Jordan don't hit on me as often, which is awesome because then I don't feel like a pedophile on days I sub there.**
However, I have to hand it to the ghetto Salt Lake kids, I never ran into this problem when I subbed in that district.
Me: (wearing University of Kentucky sweatshirt)
15 year old: So did you go there for college?
Me: No, but I'm from there.
15 year old: Oh, are you scared to go back?
Me: (confused) Um....why?
15 year old: Well, it's in Texas, right?
Me: Um....no, it's a state.
15 year old: Oh.....
I really wanted to ask her why Texas is "scary," but I was too busy attempting to act professional and not laugh at her.
