Here's the rule for what to do

LOL, very nice and funny poem, but too bad it doesn't work 4 me. our supply teacher is always the same teacher and so she always knows what our real teacher does. when it was her first time, the class did something like what your poem told us to do but that supply teacher told the real teacher everything and the real teacher was pretty upset... but it was still fun! =D
