Arguing 101

Why are you in the office?

I don’t know.

Did you come here from class?

Yes.

What happened in class?

Nothing.

Why did you get kicked out?

I didn’t get kicked out! That teacher kicked me out.

So you got kicked out.

No I didn’t! She kicked me out.

I’m sorry, I don’t understand. Can you explain the difference?

I didn’t get kicked out. She kicked me out.

Okay. Well. What happened right before you left?

That teacher got mad at me.

For what?

Nothing. She just hates me.

She doesn’t hate you. Something must have happened.

NO. Nothing happened.

What did you do right before she got mad at you?

I said, “This stinks.”

Ahh, so you were talking?

I wasn’t talking. I said, “This stinks.”

Right, so you talked.

No.
