    And all the girlies say...

    I'm pretty fly for a white guy.


    I just heard the funniest thing in my life today.
    I was in class with Professor I-can't-pronounce-your-last-name-for-the-life-of-me-cuz-it's-chinese. Well, I forget to turn my phone off. Lo and behond it rings. Well, my ring is the Offspring song "Pretty Fly for a White Guy"
    The class laughs.
    The prof looks at me and says:

    "So, you pwetty fwhy fo a why-gai huh?"

    Then he crosses his arms accross his chest all gansta gangsta-like and gives that "look"

    I almost pissed my pants.

    The whole class was almost in tears. The teacher didn't quite get it.

    People's phones that go off during class usually have boring lame ringtunes.

    Offspring FTW.

    serious? Because that's stealing where I come from.
    There was a teacher who took away cell phones if they went off in class, and one day the kid that got his taken away used another kid's phone to call campus security. Security said the prof couldn't take the phones regardless of if they went off in class or not...the idea that they could was just a rumor. . .

    Yes, that was back when the Offspring still made decent songs. That takes me back...

    Really? I like their newer songs just as much as their older ones.


    I hate it when cell phones ring during class. It always seems to happen when the professor is saying something important, and I lose focus for a second and miss what was being said. Its not even just the students either. I'd say about half of my professors had their cell phone ring during class.

    Every prof passed out a syllabus and a flyer saying no cellphones allowed at the beginning of the semester. Not that anyone cared, phones go off all the time and my profs continue teaching.

    Yea, but that doesn't mean they can take the phone away...



    I likes most of Offspring's stuff until they released Splinter...that one had a couple good tracks. I havn't heard anything decent since.

    Well, in both my high school and my college, it is in the addendum of the school rules that teachers have the choice to confiscate cell phones.

    Most of them return it at the end of class, on repeated behaviour they keep it a week, and there have been rare occasions where you had to miss it until the end of the year.

    This may seem rude and exaggerated, but after a few rings, no one dares to put his cell phone on during the class :thumbsup:

    I had college professors kick people out for their cellphone ringing, but never saw a professor confiscate a phone.

    When I was substitute teaching in high school and middle schools, I confiscated roughly 1 phone a week. As required by school system policy, first and second offenses were kept until picked up by a parent/guardian. Third offense stayed confiscated for a week no matter what. It's amazing how upset the parents would get. Some parents were even requiring their kids to call them during the course of the day. If you wonder why test scores are low, it's not the schools, it's the crazy parents.

    I agree, it's never our fault, always the parents' :grin:

    Although technically, I haven't confiscated any phones myself yet :rolleyes:

    But I do remember a school where kids weren't even allowed to turn on their cell phone during play-break (it would be bad for their social life, they think all the children would use their whole 10-15 minutes sending messages)

    I hate it when ringtones go off in class, because it's always some gay rap song or black girls screaming.

    My son has had a cell since the 7th grade. Always on Vibrate when at school. Not a hard thing to do to avoid even hassling with it.

    At work when were at meetings if a cell goes off you gotta pay $5.00 into the Jar. The jar money goes to pay for gifts at the Christmas Party. And after a whole year we get some pretty nice gifts at Christmas (Digital Cameras, LCD Big Screens, etc.)

    I always stick with a pretty sedate, came with the phone ring tone.

    The funniest thing I ever saw was a guy (Claimed he was using his wives cell) had Aqua Barbie Girl go off at the check out stand at Vons. Dude turned like beet red! :lol:

    I've had some guy in my math class start growling once when a cell phone went off... That guy was nuts, he later told us about how he had dreams about the infinity symbols chasing him in a forest and zeros bouncing around.
    The teacher had the funniest look on his face. :laugh:
