I was sitting in with the middle school band I've been working with, and a student was on her iPod during band, so I took it away.
Student 1: Can I have that back? I need to charge it.
Student 2 [muttered]: Just charge it when you get home and stay off it at school. You're using their electricity when they can't even afford colored paper. I'd much rather have colored paper.
I have been teaching music across the Twin Cities since 2011. Along with seeing students grow as musicians and people, one of the joys of teaching is the ridiculous things my students say.
