Times have changed. I was my science teacher’s favorite (I like science and the outdoors, hunting, fishing, etc. - just like him).
He pulled me aside before class one day when we were doing biology. I agreed to his plan. We were to take our pulse while resting, walking, etc. After about the second time of doing it at rest I started staring out the window, had my feet up on a desk. He asked me why I wasn’t taking my pulse. I mouthed off a bit to him about “this is stupid”. When I mouthed off a second time he sent me out into the hall, where I mouthed off again and he hit the lockers like he was banging me against them.
It escalated from there, he stomped back into the class room, grabbed a gun out of his desk and exclaimed to the class “I’ll take care of him” and then fired a blank into the ground.
Then we BOTH walked in and he said “Okay - everybody take your pulse NOW!”
Well, all except the girl than ran past us as she saw the gun or heard the shot to get the principal.
Nobody got in trouble. Stupid I suppose - but we ALL did a lot of stupid (and fun!) things back then without having to worry about stuff.
there is a difference in your case.... You knew what was going on while the rest of the class only thought you were going to die (not them). Admittedly it is a small difference.
I wish we knew why this guy thought it was a good idea to do this. Maybe there was a reason he had for the behavior.
Guns aren’t toys, period. People frequently get blanks and real rounds confused.
Putting people in fear for their life isn’t funny, its sadistic and pathetic.
