You KNOW you teach rich kids when the following conversation happens:
Student: I love your shoes.
Me: Thank you!
Student: Are they Louis Vuitton?
(I’m thinking: Louis Vuitton makes shoes?!)
Me: No…they’re from Ross.
Student: Ross? I don’t know that brand.
Me: It’s not a brand, it’s a chain store. It’s one pay tier above Goodwill and one pay tier below TJ Maxx.
Student: I’ve heard of Goodwill, but I’ve never been there.
**Can’t make this stuff up, people. You can only accept that sometimes you teach rich kids. There’s nothing wrong with it; it can just be a sharp reality check. But at the same time, hey: someone thought my Ross shoes were LV. Snap.**
