Mother Becomes Concerned About the Language Her Son’s Learning From His Math Teacher

Kids have a way of interpreting the things we say in some pretty hilarious ways. This is especially true when it comes to names and big words. They will sometimes find what sounds more familiar in their brains and use that instead. For example, I called my Auntie Sheila, “TT,” and it’s stuck ever since. A friend’s little boy would call me “Yo” instead of Joe, and that’s now my name for the rest of his life. Some of the funniest misunderstandings can happen when kids think they hear one word when it’s really another. Such was the case with the little boy in this fictional story whose mom walked in on him using some rather alarming language while doing his math homework.

Little Billy was at home doing his math homework. He said to himself, “Two plus five, that son of a bitch is seven. Three plus six, that son of a bitch is nine.”

In that moment, his mother comes in and hears what he is saying.

“Billy, what are you doing? Why are you saying that?”

Little Billy answered, “I’m doing my math homework, Mom.”

She said, “And is that what your teacher taught you?”

He replied, “Yes.”

The next day, the mother, worried about the education her son is receiving, goes to Little Billy’s school to talk to the teacher.

The mother said to his math teacher, “I would like to know what you are teaching my son in math?”

The teacher replied, “Right now, we are learning addition problems.”

Billy’s mother asked, “And are you teaching them to say two plus two, that son of a bitch is four?”

When the teacher stopped laughing she replied, “Not at all! What I taught them was two plus two, THE SUM OF WHICH IS four.”
