“Teacher: ‘Why are you late?’ Student: ‘Why does it matter? You still get paid, right?‘“

A school conversation has been printed on several images:

TEACHER: Why are you late?
STUDENT: Why does it matter? You still get paid, right?


The late student’s snarky comment was posted on Twitter on March 24, 2010.
