As a teacher, what should you do if you have a group of loud, snot-nosed (I assume) students who won’t shut up and let you teach? There’s detention. Being sent to the principal’s office. Or you could go for the jugular and threaten to spoil Game of Thrones for them.
I’m in awe. That’s Asha/Yara-level badass, with a side of Tywinesque evil. It’s perfect. I love it.
The educator in question is an unnamed math teacher in a Belgium high school/amateur Satan. Via The Telegraph:
Asking his students which of them watched the fantasy drama, the majority raised their hands, to which the teacher responded: “Well, I’ve read all the books. If there is too much noise, I will write the names of the dead on the board.”
Reported in the Belgian newspaper nieuwsblad.be, the teacher continued: “They [the dead] are enough to fill the whole year and I can even describe how they die.”
The students at first assumed their beloved teacher wouldn’t follow through, but when he started to write names on the board—no mention as to which, though I hope for the students’ sakes he didn’t start with The Big Ones—they realized he was serious and shut their traps.
I need to start doing this. Dudebro plays their music really loud on the subway? Spoil Game of Thrones. Woman takes up two seats? Spoil Game of Thrones. Particularly awful Internet commenter?
Spoil Game of Thrones.
Don’t think I won’t.
