Always Do What Your Teacher Tells You

Just be prepared to be punished when you do.
School officials on Monday suspended a 14-year-old boy who said he had to urinate in a bottle after his science teacher refused to let him use the restroom.


[Student Michael] Patterson said he went into a corner of the classroom on Tuesday and urinated into an empty Gatorade bottle after his teacher repeatedly refused to give him a pass to use the restroom and threatened to have him suspended if he left the classroom.

"He said, 'Do what you got to do,"' Patterson said. "I said, 'I've got a bottle' and he said, 'Go in the corner.' So I just handled my business."
How'd the teacher come out of this? He was put on paid leave, naturally, and is being transferred to another public school. I'm sure this guy can eppext eggspecked extetp expect a transfer, too.
