image for English Teacher Falls Asleep In Lesson
Someone not quite awake

An English teacher teaching English in the Thai capital of Bangkok was accused of 'burning the candle at both ends' this week, after he fell asleep in one of his lessons, raising concerns that he had become bored by the inability of students to grasp even the simplest concepts of language learning.

The teacher - insert here the name of ANY teacher who has taught in Thailand - entered the Land of Nod after students repeatedly failed to understand the basic principle of adding the letter 's' onto a noun to indicate plurality.

After several minutes repeating an exaggerated 'ssssss' at the end of several nouns, the teacher's eyes glazed over, and he thenceforth produced a low, droning 'zzzzz' sound, as he took an estimated 41 winks.

Students looked on, befuddled, as is their normal reaction to virtually everything.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
