Students Say The Craziest Things Part 2

On Sunday I was walking in the hallway and saw one of my students, Trang. Trang is always on the edge of her seat, waving her hand at me to answer questions. Yeah, one of those types. Well, I smiled at her and said, "Hi, Trang!" She ignored me and kept on walking. I thought it was odd until a second later I saw Trang again and did a double-take. Turns out she's an identical twin. This is the conversation that then took place:

BEN: Trang, you have a twin sister?
TRANG: Yes. And her teacher is a better teacher than you. You're a bad teacher. Her teacher plays more games than you.
BEN: Oh, well that's not very nice to say.

Trang shrugged her shoulders as if to say, "I don't care." I then thought for a second and said:

BEN: Trang, is your sister in the same level as you? Is she also Pre-Intermediate 1?
TRANG: No, she's Pre-Intermediate 2.
BEN: Oh, so your sister is a better student than you.

I shrugged my shoulders and walked into the teacher's room. SNAP! I got her good. I put that 11 year old in her place!!!!

Okay, maybe I didn't say that last line but I really really wanted to.
