“Surely one of my students wants to be something other than a flight attendant?”
One of the males of the species shyly (I think) raised its foreleg. “I want to do logistics.”
“Excellent! For what industry?”
“Um, for flight attendants.”
Time for a talk. “Okay, I know your planet somehow received only our broadcasts of Airplane! for many decades…but there are other options.”
The students' wails became earsplitting.
“Fine, you can be flight attendants!”
Sniffling, they seemed appeased—for now.
Man, signing up for a two-year contract with Teach for Glork was a huge mistake.
